It’s a cool trail there are spots on the trail where the markers are confusing but really hard to get lost, just walk down hill to re orientate. I’ll go back because I wasn’t able to complete the full trail due to confusing trail markers I ended up taking a connection trail cutting about an 1hour of my hike short

Hiking, birding and geocaching what more does a little old Forester need

Nice trails good jumps

Great trail especially if you make it up to the boulders by Roaring Brook to enjoy some quiet time...

It was wonderful trail all the times .. I have gone this trail at least 20-30 times since last 4 years.

I would call this trail easy, but it was nice! Not many spectacular views, but great for a quick day hike and looks like it has some great bouldering spots that I didn't get to try out on this trip.

Heavily wooded moderate trail, one of the better ones in central jersey. Definitely a little rocky but the inclines aren’t anything difficult. Extremely muddy when wet but consists of about 5% wooden walkways, mostly over the muddiest portions.

Took the square trail to the red and back to the square with no connectors. Always a great afternoon hike — takes a little under 3 hours for the entire loop if you don’t stop often. Trails are well maintained but can get a little sloppy when wet.

was good but couldnt finish since it got dark

Nice easy hike but definitely want to do mountain bike on this trail.

This is a relatively easy hiking trail. It might be more fun for mountain biking. I saw more people doing mountain biking than hiking.

Beautiful trails with diverse terrain. Moderate hiking with some steep inclines and declines but adds to the challenge. Few good places to stop and rest and have some snacks. Muddy and rocky in a few areas but nothing too messy as long as you miss the muddy season. Overall a lot of fun and good exercise.

first one for me for mountain biking, though I used my sport hybrid, fell off from bike couple of times, but overall this is good mountain biking trail. would love to do it again but this time with mountain bike of course.

Wet, but the rocks add to the strategy. Beautiful creek, and well marked

Simple, heavily wooded trail - a dumbed down version of the more scenic outer loop. Good for someone looking for a quick hour hike!

Great hike. Good diversity. Probably the most challenging you’ll get in Hillsborough area.

Great for Mountain Biking

A lot of fun. It has many jumps, bumps, and different scenery which to enjoy. Definitely challenging. However, could be marked better at the point in which the loop starts..We got lost for a bit before finding the trail again (start-blue).

Really enjoyed hiking here. It was after recent snowfall so there was water on some of the trails, but that makes the hike better to me.

Easy-moderate home with a few small water features.

Nice well marked trails- closer to easy than moderate

even though signs say for bikes to yield to hikers, that isn't how it works. self preservation demands that hikers yield to bikes. trail is way to narrow to walk next to someone or to pass another party (on foot or on wheels) without stepping to the side. beautiful scenery though.

Easy trail. “Walk in the Woods”.

Great MTB trail, lots of small jumps and features.

great for biking. It'll be muddy/ wet for at least a day after rain. some trails have challenging parts but most are easy overall. Only one trail is clearly marked no bikes and if you go on it you'll know. I don't know why the hikers are complaining, it's a multi use trail for non motorized activities. bikes are allowed.
ps - a big thank you to the groups that help maintain this trail system.

great hike. fun Rocky areas
