Nice trail, short paths but good terrain for exercise. Very wet/muddy in certain spots so I wouldn't recommend wearing shoes you don't want getting dirty. Very pretty.

We really enjoyed our run! If I were to have any complaints it would be to have a bathroom/ porta potty at the parking lots. Not sure how many people are runners, but this can be an issue for some! Finished and had brunch at the Lovin Oven. Perfect adventure.

Went from Frenchtown nj to bulls island crossed over briidge to pa and road to uhlerstown pa covered bridge up the road to uhlerstown Frenchtown bridge bac to our car. About 18 miles. Nice ride.

trail running

If you're looking for a traditional hike, then this might not be exactly what you had in mind--the park is scenic and gorgeous, but the trails are more like very well-cleared paths. There are gentle, rolling ups and downs--not a ton of climbing or scrambling like some of my other favorite hikes.

But what it IS perfect for is trail running!!! I typically run at Bernadette Morales Preserve or Sourland Mountains--this morning was my first time at this park, and I will definitely be back! The cons: there aren't a ton of natural obstacles or jumping from rock to rock (all things I love), but on the pro side: it is absolutely gorgeous, and the elevation is constantly changing from up and down to back again!!!! Definitely more than enough to keep you interested--you kill yourself trying to run up a gentle incline, and then get the reward of sprinting back down!

5 stars for trail running--for hiking, I might give it a 3. I will definitely be including it in my rotation from here on out!

Decent easy trails, not marked very well. Found 3 Geocaches as well

Flat ride and beautiful scenery

Very confusing system of 3 or 4 trails. More of a leisurely hike with the exception of the Flagg trail, which was more of a hiking trail. It was still only 3.5 miles and quite easy. Very pretty scenery for a fall walk.
It was very close to Lambertville, which was a nice way to end the day with a nice meal and quaint stores. You can also walk across the bridge to New Hope for more shops and restaurants.
Not bad.

Firstly, this trail is not hard but easy. Secondly, no trail was 10 miles. The accumulation of all the small trails may add up to 10 miles, but we were expecting a full loop. There was one trail (Kirkland Flagg?) that was about 4 miles. It was very pretty on this fall day and a great way to spend a few hours. I would recommend this if you only want walk a couple hours then go check out the town Lambertville or New Hope.

I wouldn't suggest day hiking here. Seeingly large area is pretty small, not much to see, and trails are poorly marked. Good family spot though or for horseback riding.

A little muddy in spots but otherwise loved it!

very easy trail. mostly shaded keep you out of the sun on a very hot afternoon. stop at new hope for lunch. areas you can cool off in the river. worth the trip on a weekend.

This is another, nice stroll on an old canal towpath - more of a walk than a hike, but I suppose that depends on how far you go. It's pleasant anyway, especially away from the crowds in Frenchtown, and especially in the fall. As a multi-use trail, you'll probably run into (not literally) several bikes and dogs.
