I have completed this trail in the past and I loved it. Very easy, beautiful views and love the boardwalk. However, I drove by the trailhead on 5/15/20 and the trail was closed due to COVID. Just thought I would mention it incase anyone was planning a trip!

Very fun spot with pretty field views. Way too crowded, at least during quarantine. Be prepared to have to step off the boardwalk to be able to pass people. We loved the cows and overall beauty of the boardwalk. Will definitely be back, but 100% won’t go back during quarantine since everyone flocks here.

Simply the best!! What a unique and fun trail. Weather was perfect, not too many bugs. Lots of people on this walk, so you're never completely alone. The trail was clearly marked and well maintained. Be careful if you park along 517 (McAfee Glenwood Road), there are No Parking signs in some spots. You'll get ticketed and/or towed if you're in the wrong spot. About a mile in you'll hit the trail, with small sections of boardwalk. If you keep going you'll eventually hit the cow pasture and the trail head for Stairway to Heaven. This goes on my list of trails to do again! I also met some lovely people, Mina and her family (I hope I spelled that correctly). Get out and enjoy this trail while the weather is still nice, and 6 minutes from the trail head is Heaven Hill Market. Go get an apple cider donut when you're finished!!

Great hike/walk kind of narrow on the boardwalk part but very fun and smells good the flowers or the trees

Very nice scenery.

Beautiful boardwalk, you will come across a suspension bridge which was a surprise for us. All together, a very well maintained trail for everyone in the family.

Beautiful boardwalk trail with plenty of streams, birds and wildlife. Very nice Mountain View’s at the beginning. Trail was very muddy at the end of the trail where it loops around. Also gets pretty busy on the weekend when it’s nice out.

pleasant stroll with a well maintained boardwalk and interesting wooden bridge. Pretty scenic by NJ standards. We encountered some Appalachian Trail thru-hikers. Most were courteous sharing the trail but some a bit aggressive
