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

Paved and shaded in spots! Lots of great options. Saw a snake and some turtles. A very nice hike when you don’t want to deal with slippery rocks.

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.

Me and 3 friends ventured out for a 6 1/2 mile walk/hike , it was glorious and highly recommended for all ages!

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

Get place for a run! And it comes with a heavy dose of history as well. Recommend hitting the visitors center first for a briefing before entering the estate.

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).

Easy-moderate home with a few small water features.

Nice well marked trails- closer to easy than moderate

Usually run here at least once or twice a week. The grounds are beautiful, and there is even a tram available for those less inclined to walk around. Nice park tucked away in Somerset County.

locally available
beautiful
lots of surprises
some natural, many man made but all intriguing

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

So much to see Trails, flowers, wildlife plants, even saw wild turkies! It's good to bring your family and friends. You can walk or ride a bike rented bike (Like we did) or bring your own.

Wonderful for the family bike outing. Some hills, but mostly paved trails. Easy parking access and well maintained. Not really mountain biking, just easy trails.

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.
