We thought we would get out for another thousand feet gain before the snow came. It ended up snowing on us the way back, but it was beautiful and we made great time. We love this hike.

This was a very pleasant hike on a very nice day. be aware the trailhead is behind the gate at the petting zoo. once we figured that out we did the full 8 miles, lots of ups and downs, but easily handled. trail is very well marked and easily followed

Super fun that you walk through the petting zoo to access trail. Nice mixture of inclines, declines, and flats. I would call this more of a moderate hike. Twists and turns make it feel whimsical.

The trail segment between Rt 322 and Furnace Hill Pike is a bit more interesting than the other side. That part has more variation, passes by Eagle Rock and you might even get some goats staring at you at the very end by the Pretzel Hut (a lot of them). Both sides are well-blazed, there just isn't much to see on the west side unless you are going for the ascent/fitness.

Hiked a portion of Lenape, Boone and Horseshoe Trail. Clear cool day in mid March. Only saw two others on the trails. Very quiet, not much green yet. Only a few blowdowns, and some mud but all in all the trails were in good shape. Thanks to whomever takes care of them.

Went in late February so it was snowy and muddy. I loved the hills. There is a road separating the trail and that got confusing but it wasn’t too bad. There is a little chicken, duck, turkey coop behind the pretzel hut that you walk past which was neat.

After days of rain, parts of the trail were flooded, and there was a lot of mud, but it was a nice walk! I’d like to go back and do more of the trail when the weather’s better.

Would rate as an easy trail. Trail is narrow at times and mostly flat. Did not see anyone else on the trail.

Next part of the trail done. This section was from 501 to Seglock Road. We got to see Cannon Hill. Saw a man on a horse, other hikers and joggers as well. Pretty decent hike. Spring vegetation all over the place!

Came here on a slightly rainy and foggy day. First time in the trail. We did two miles between routes 501 and 322, past Eagle Rock. The trail was very well marked but pretty rocky at times. Small waterfalls along the way.

I like this trail. There isn’t anything dramatic about it, but it has fun surprises along the way. Eagle Rock is a cool look out on a clear day, the small waterfalls are a pretty surprise, along with the great rock formations and informal petting zoo behind the Pretzel Hut. I think it’s appropriate for hiking, dogs, trail running, and kids.

Nicely challenging for trail running. There are lots of rocks so just be cautious of your footing.

not necessarily easy to find, but once you do, it's nice....go through the gate that's behind the restaurant....
