A short, pleasant hike. Great for families and birders. No dogs allowed. No dogs allowed here. Its a short, easy but pleasant walk in this small oasis of green in the middle of Bergen County. Catch the trail behind the kiosk and turn left. It will go through an often wet area and it follows a stream for a way, then a drainage ditch. To your right is the meadow with acres of phraghmites spread out before you. Stay on the trail and you will soon pass an observation platform. A good spot to view birds from. The trail winds around the lake and turns east, then south before returning to the beginning. This is by no means a wilderness hike, as you're never far from roads and area homes, yet is worthwile if you're interested in birding and the area is also known for its many butterflies. Because of its short length its also a great hike for families with young children

Excellent. mostly shaded nature walk. Large lake with bird posts and housing. Lots of wildlife - fish, deer, herons, birds, ducks, geese, rabbits, turtles, and more.

Ice spot and the grounds are maintained for use. It's a small loop and good for children. It can get a little muddy on the trail after a heavy storm.
The small vantage points allow for great viewing of the wildlife in the area.
The old farm equipment adds a great imaginary/rustic addition to the grounds. Whole place can me seen in 1-2 hours.

This is a good trail with kids. There are a number of benches to rest and a few lookout points. Kids especially liked the abandoned tractor and the half dozen deer we saw coming to take a drink at a stream. A few words of caution: there are tons of tree roots to watch for and the snow is melting so it's very, very muddy in spots.

Great trails a little over a mile, you can get a jogger style stroller through the park. There are some mud patches and tree roots. Not a complaint just a heads up.

The park offers perches to survey the preserve and the wide variety of wildlife. We loved the tractor and other farm equipment adds to the experience for any child.

Def a good spot

It's not the best hike as far as challenge. It's a walk. However , as far as nature and magic go. It's a must see

Good if you can get on the platforms when the photographers are not hogging it. Also a lot of runners so can be disturbing the wildlife in front of you.

Nice little place for a short hike/walk. Great for the family very easy. A couple little platforms to look out into the pond. Looks like a great place for bird lovers to.
