Montclair, New Jersey Map

nice and easy trail to get started. take the red trail to warm up. take the yellow or blue for a bit more elevation and views.

This trail was ok, the markers weren’t clear or visible at times, many people walking, running, dog walking. Not very clean

Eh, It’s alright for what it is but I’ve always had parking issues and people constantly walking their dogs unleashed. A bit on the short side as I usually like to go on longer hikes. The path along the NYC skyline is very nice though.

Very nice views at top. Not really a hiking trail for me. But great for a walk around.

Great place to hike, jog or walk the dog. Lots of friendly people and families. Great view up top.

Very nice to find around here, relaxing trail nothing too hard. nice walk in the woods

Signs say no bikes. Signs also say keep dogs on leash, however, all but 1 dog I saw were roaming freely.

Very comfortable walk with kids and older dogs.

My weekly go-to—nice, easy

Nice quick walk about.

Nice trail, my first one. Good for beginners. I saw deer, beautiful view of NYC. I'm hooked many more to conquer.

Nice Fall colors.... easy access... easy hike. With some effort there are good views of local area and the NY C skyline. Trails did not appear to be marked all that well. Its safe because all trails loop back to parking lot.

Very easy trail...more like a walk. But beautiful view of Manhattan. I went with my friend and we were barely out of breath any where. Fun for kids.

I used to walk this trail often when I was a kid. I recently went back and it's still very nice. It's great for beginners and kids.

First time up there with the family. Kids had a great time. Can't wait to go in the spring time and explore different trails.

there is a "main" trail that is a 2 mile "loop". There are colored trails (various colors painted on trees) should you choose to pick a color and hike through the woods. if you only have a certain amount of time, and cannot complete the full loop course, follow another color back. Also there will be lots of families with dogs walking. Great for bird watching i have been told, and if you enter on old quarry rd in cedar grove you can walk up to edge of the cliffs and see beautiful views of new york and neighboring area. **there are trees that have fallen, roots and rocks hidden under fallen leaves on the ground so watch your footing. very easy. if you want the exercise run through the course. keep in mind there will be dogs and children should you choose to mountain bike

very family friendly and very dog friendly. do this walk all the time. easy walk, no real steep inclines or declines. great views. excellent for bird watching. its a loop so u can walk it multiple times. during the night time bring a flashlight it is not lit. can be walked if snows with family. excellent to walk during the seasons especially spring and fall.

This was exactly what we needed. Something a little challenging for the kids and a nice stroll for the adults. Did the blue trail and the yellow trail back.

Very nice trail for an afternoon stroll. Be careful if you bring your dog, lots of broken glass.

Easy loop to do at least twice. Some parts are a little rougher than the "paved" parts. Dogs are there and a lot without leashes.
