Excellent park

Nice walk around a lake. Some parts of path are uneven from tree root growth. Lake has a play ground for the kids. And if you are into fishing the lake has bass, sunfish, carp, catfish, and stocked trout.

Not very difficult but it was beautiful and scenic

Nice trails, there are a few. I go there pretty often. Great place for kids to sled. Nice farm land, and wooded areas. A playground and dogs are allowed.

White lake is beautiful. The trail is easy. FYI, in the summer on Wednesday mornings and Friday afternoons they offer free kayaking. First come first serve. And they only do it for 3 hours.

I made a left from the parking lot and followed the blue trail to the yellow trail, right at yellow trail then followed that to to blue trail and back to the parking lot. It was 4-5 miles total. The trail was a nice combination of terrain and scenery.

I paddle this about once a year. There are always a few blowdowns but the creek is passable up to Chambers Bridge Road and a bit further upstream. It would be great to be able to paddle from Lake Shannandoah to Forge Pond but the number of really big trees across the stream make that exceedingly difficult so the out and back route from route 88 is the most practical.

Beautiful 2015 addition to Morris County's Loantaka Brook Reservation. This trail goes through the heart of the historic property once owned by Geraldine Rockefeller Dodge. Previously used as a Revolutionary War encampment. Lovely natural plant communities, a small pond, and wonderful views. Cinder path is easy on the legs. Dogs on leashes. Enjoy!

This Historic area was used by the Native American Lenni Lenape Tribe as a summer meeting place. The beautiful natural lake Leeds into a gently flowing river. As you paddle upstream you will see an abundance of wild life, including fish, turtles, ducks, Osprey and much more . This quiet and beautiful area will provide a great day on the water. Bring plenty to drink, this is an undisturbed nature preserve. Leave no trace.

Nice gravel trail, short, easy walk with a nice view at the end and open area to sit and relax. Raspberries all along the trail in July! Lots of people in the nice weekend weather, small parking lot was full by 11am. Dogs are allowed as long as they are on a leash.

Very easy hike with not much change in elevation and well maintained trails. Mostly wooded with some lake views and beautiful meadows. Ruins of an old lime kiln and enormous 1800's ice house that later processed marl. A few other historical remnants can be seen nearby. Trail maps are available at the parking area.

Beautiful park with easy trail. However, My husband and I must have walked into a nest because we were covered in baby ticks after the short trail.
