I would say this trail is more moderate than easy. The terrain was quite rocky with steep inclines at points. Having said that it was a nice hike. We had our dog and she did just fine with it. It takes you right to the river so if there has been a lot of rain, plan on getting your boots wet. Definitely would do it again.

It’s like taking a walk in the park for 13 miles - not too much scenery, especially once as you get off the Batona trail. Only saw a handful of people. There was a part where you had to cross an unfinished bridge and it was washed out in a spot causing us to go an extra mile.

Trail conditions were muddy, but passable given the 2" of rain we got the day prior.

Views are great once you look past the garbage

My first hike so this place is near and dear to my heart. My girlfriend was always going on about hiking, so I finally tagged along...needless to say I loved every minute of it and was bouncing around like a kid on Christmas morning.

Decent uphill trek, just enough, but not too much.

The gorgeous view from the peak makes the journey up all the more worth it.

Definitely worth checking out.

Nice little trail. Stumbled upon it while looking for another location and decided to give it a shot.

We underestimated the weather but once the sun broke it was much more enjoyable.

There was a cool portion in which you have to cross a downed tree over a small stream. My girlfriend ended up taking one of her new boots for a dip 

Definitely worth it if you have a free day and are in the area.

Nice hike we started out at otter hole, the yellow trail, up to blue then white to see the falls and back. There is a good size creek crossing where yellow turns to blue.

This is the tallest waterfall in NJ and it is right next to the road. Next to it is a great trail that takes you through a forest and leads to the Appalachian Trail. Tough in places but cool. Check out my full review along with some things to look out for.

Awesome views of Pennsylvania from the NJ side of the water gap. The trail can be rough in some places. Check out my full write up which includes directions and things to look out for.

Well-marked trail and not crowded at all on a Thursday afternoon. There’s also a nice gift shop and bathrooms inside the visitor center.

Nice easy basically level walk through the woods. Under three miles just enough when there is not much time.

A few muddy patches but nothing to cry about. A fair amount of solace but a few people playing music. I don’t know the bicycle situation but I did see some tracks. My first proper hike through this park and I have to say here at the start of spring time it’s beautiful.

About half way through we walked right up to a black bear! Luckily it ran away(: There’s a couple nice scenes along the trail. I’m sure its because of the season but it was super muddy. Without the blue markers we’d be totally lost cause there’s not always a clear path!

very pretty loop

Nice to get out and walk if you live nearby but the red trail goes along the perimeter which brings you close to roads and homes so we opt for the inner trail which is shorter but more secluded

extremely simple very good views on the short way, the long way is a bit boring because it is next to the road nothing to see but I recommend it for beginners and families children etc...

Very easy and very flat. Nice stroll in the neighborhood
