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!

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.

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

loved this hike!
-great boulder fields and lots of rocks so have some good hiking boots ready.

-not too steep but some ups and downs.

-plenty of boulders to explore and climb

-well marked for the most part but may be looking for markers at some points

No Dogs? How about no mountain bikes on the trails that are marked hiking only and how about not tearing the hiking trail markers down so you can ride. Nice during the week weekends too busy. Never did see a no dogs sign

Great trail nice scenery.

One of the best local trails in the area.

Much steeper and rockier than I thought. Lots of fun. Depending on the path you choose, not at all appropriate for dogs! Also, not as well indicated as I would have expected. Thank goodness for all the "donation" signs on the trees!

Six Mile Run is the name of the stream that runs through the property; don't be confused and think that's the distance of the trails. I've been enjoying the trails at 6MR since 2002 and love them. Mountain bike use has increased drastically over the years, but I still enjoy them for trail running and hiking. Most cyclists say "thank you" when you jump into the poison ivy for them. :-)

Let's face it, there is not a lot of elevation to be had in the middle of Jersey. Clayton has some fun hills and the Yellow Trail at Baldpate will get your heart pumping a bit, but the Sourlands have quickly become my "local" favorite. Rocky, but very nice trails, not overgrown at all, even mid-summer. Odd system for marking trails, and marked pretty well... for the most part. I always seem to lose the trail at the top North corner, by the boulders. People seem to wander around and explore in this area a lot so a distinct trail is no so easy to follow. Fortunately, its pretty difficult to really get lost, just head downhill. There are a lot of options for distance and difficulty. Overall, a great place, but beware, the lot gets very full, very fast on the weekends.

Very nice and somewhat vigorous trek through the Sours. Just enough traffic to break up the still of mid day with some pleasantries of conversation from a passerby. Delightful yet energetic afoot in these hills. ☮️
