Great trail for beginners, I took Cub Scout families on this hike and everyone was able to do it, no problem. Nice view at the top.

Tall trees and brush blocking most of the city view but a nice easy trail for family stroll. Expect about an hour with small kids.

Great trail especially with kids. Wide path. Lots of benches to stop along the way. Picnic tables at the top perfect for lunch.

Finally did the trail in the correct direction. Much easier than the opposite way.

Your choice of short but steep up hill climb or easier zig zag climb looping to the summit with many benches for resting for kids or older adults in the way. It's easy to follow this wide gravel trail.

Easy trail that is mostly well marked. I did a 6.1 mile loop without having to follow the same trail twice.

Good for a quick walk just to get out. Wildflower Trail is an extra bonus if you want to spend a little more time.

Nice hike in the neighborhood! There are many trails but its just hard to find a trail map. Its maintained really well and from the viewing point we can see the nyc skyline. Inspite of many trails I could find only 1 trail in all trails. There is a waterfront but didn't get a chance to hike due to lack of proper trail maps.

This relatively short hike will take you about an hour if you stay at the top for the beautiful views, a picnic/snack, and a trip down 9/11 memory lane (memorial). We take our Cub Scouts (ages 7 - 11) on this hike at least once a year!

One of my favorite trails in North Jersey. The Red Trail is actually a 3.6-mile (give or take) loop if you do the entire loop. The Yellow Trail is its own 1.3-mile loop, and you get to it via the Red Trail. The Yellow Trail aka “Top of the Tourne” is the park’s main vista and features views of the NYC skyline (there is also a small makeshift 9/11 memorial there). The climb is moderate but very doable (I’ve seen parents walking toddlers up it!) The rest of the Red Trail is very easy with few inclines. To do the entire loop you need to travel down the road that cuts through the park for a short distance, but there’s very little traffic and plenty of room to walk along the side. There is also a section of the Red Trail that is gated to protect wildflowers—hikers with dogs can’t enter here, but it just means you have a slightly longer walk along the road. The Red Trail leads to Birchwood Lake—I highly recommend doing the loop around it for some nice lake views. I’d consider this trail fairly highly trafficked. Be on alert if you have a reactive dog that a lot of people let their dogs off-leash here and can’t always guarantee their dogs have a good recall. All trails, even the lesser traveled ones, are well-marked. I’ve never gotten lost here.

I went late April/early may, which I think was a bad choice because it was hot but all the trees were still bare. I had heard that was a good time for wildflowers on the wildflower trail, but there were barely any. Would try again at a different time of year.

This is an easy loop on a well maintained and heavily trafficked trail. More benches than I have ever seen on such a short hike. Not much to see, views are nothing special. Some cool boulders and rock features. Lots of other trails in the park. Plenty of parking at the trailhead.
