Berkeley Heights, New Jersey Map

Hiked the trail today. Basically flat with some minor elevation. I found it well marked. Very, very muddy - waterproof boots a must. Some bridges/planks that make it neat. My wife and I enjoyed it - saw two big buck up close. Overall 4/5.

Did the white trial on Saturday and there was a guy out there with a chainsaw and a loose German Shepherd . Def got nervous so we turned around and went the other way. Is that allowed out there ?

I though the trail was pretty cool but nothing really that makes it stand out. The highlight was a small walking bridge above a flowing creek. Great for some light cardio.

Very nice trail but poorly marked. We got lost in between and had to figure way out via GPS. I really wish if they could mark the trails appropriately and also have exit signs for all different parking lots.

I bring my 5 year old little girl out here frequently. She is able to complete the hike without any problems.

Poorly marked —I would not go if you were a female running alone

You definitely need gps to find your way around. Trails NOT well marked. Very pretty woods and dog friendly.

Nice trail, the red lines don't follow trails exactly but with gps was totally able to find our way and figure out which trails to take. Definitely will use again!! Considering paid version .

The trails here are amazing. Perfect proximity to shopping, freeways, parks, parking, lots of single track and river crossings (mostly dry). Wish they had trimmed back the thorn bushes overgrown some sections of the trail. Enjoy it!

Did the pink trail; markings were hard to find; got lost for 30 minutes and had to backtrack. Rocky, climbed over fallen trees, some of the trail had lots of water flowing right on path. There is a rope midway through to help get you from the bottom to climb up to the next ledge ... But I'd do it again! Was a blast! 6 miles according to the trail map

I hiked this trail yesterday. A beginner trail. The markings were not clear even with a map. Terrain was rocky at times but usually dirt and flat.

oh also the whole sierra is ten miles long

Historic and interesting trail. The deserted village the old mill, hermits pond and the graveyards. Read about the village of feltvillie before you visit. Find out the ghost stories, intensifies the entire hike. Trails weren't marked to well but nothing you couldn't figure out. People on the trail were helpful. The terrain was mostly dirt but rocky at points. Heard a rumor of people living in the backwoods through a friend, I didn't encounter anyone other than hikers and dog owners...but you never know.

Love this park and ALL its trails.
With regards to the Sierra Trail the park brochure lists it as 10 miles length.
I have not walked the whole Sierra Trail at once, but portions by itself and in combination with other trails.
The Deserted Village of Feltville provides is an interesting stop and the Nature & Science Center is great for kids.

3/25/12 Lots of woodpeckers and redbreasted robins. A revolutionary war cemetery and an abandoned village. Many trees but very open feeling. Not crowded but we did encounter a few fellow hikers.

This is a great place for beginners, you cant get lost due to being surrounded by highways. That would be the best part, the worse is the old and new blazes are near each other and can take you right off the map, if thats what they call it. Their map does not show the color correct blazes, but we had a great time, there are some areas where you dont even see any blazes so be careful. There is a lot to see in the park and along the trails, from a abandoned village to a foot path that is a football field of poison ivy, yes the path goes right through it. Lots of wild life is along the paths also, mostly white tail deer which are not totally afraid of people. I cant wait to take my daughter there for her to learn on how to use a compass correctlylol.

Agree. Very fun but trails were not adequately marked and didn't match up with the map.
