Just a straight hike, not very scenic and a lot of bikers! It was very winding and fun but beware of ticks! My partner had 4 on him by the time we left and three more when we got home!

my kids and i love this trail

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.

was good but couldnt finish since it got dark

great place, for kids and lots of cycling occurring. theres a fountain and ruins also.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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”.
