Overall it was a great experience. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because they could use some better markings and part of one trail was closed and you couldn't tell until you got up to it. They should have signs up for that because you end up having to go through some pretty soggy ground to go around.

Great short trail and very easy with some slight inclines. Great for beginners, lots of shade and natural growth. My old puppy loves this walk as well, she handles it no problem. For the area it’s one of the better walks.

Fun winter hike. We went right after several inches of snow fell. The snow made it a difficult hike (mostly because there a number of elevation changes), but it was fun and very pretty. Trails are mostly well marked, except that, in a few instances, they are not well marked and in those cases we made wrong turns. The GPS saved us a few times. The main downside of the hike, which has great views and is mostly very scenic, is that the trail runs right by busy streets sometimes, which isn’t ideal. Overall, I would recommend the hike, especially in the winter. Our dog loved it!

Lovely easy-moderate more easy than moderate trail close to civilization. Kids and dogs will have no problems. Waterfall is always good to see but it is small and you cannot get close to the lake which is a bummer.

Nice easy trail. Mostly a paved loop with some smaller trails spread around. Passes by a cool quarry with a lot of great colors. This was just my wife and my second time out and this was perfect for us.

snow & ice made this trail more difficult than it needed to be. lovely at the summit. I didn't take exact trail to high point, but lovely views at the top. doubt I would hike here again, blazes were too few and far between, making it quite easy to get lost. good workout.

I only have it 3 stars because of my short jaunt this evening. I’m positive these trails have so much more to offer. It was just the “medicine” I needed though. Crisp air, “chasing” a herd of 8 deer, interesting landscapes, vegetation, and colors... not to mention a sunset that my pictures do not do justice.

I’ll be back for sure to explore with greater time!

Nice, easy, and well maintained

Well marked trails with great views of NYC and Northern Jersey

Overall a relatively easy and enjoyable trail - a nice mix of walking through forest and walking around the lake. As other reviewers said, trails are NOT well marked and we took the wrong path a few times. I would rate this as an easy hike -- maybe "moderate" due to the confusing trail markers - but good trail to bring along young kids, beginner hikers, etc.

Beautiful views!

Hike itself was okay! Wasn't all that challenging and it was your very typical views. However, that quarry is out of this world. It's so random for the area and feels like a lot of different floras are clashing but it's awesome! Definitely recommend if you want to see something out of the ordinary.

Not a bad family hike. Quiet. Easy. Trail is well maintained and marked but muddy. Some low lying areas had standing water in them.

Nice park, almost all paved. Easy.

Only downside is that it's pretty close to some major roads there's some road noise.

Saw a link to this hike and I had to do it being local to the area. This was a fascinating hike starting at Bouman Stickney Farm, going over Round Mountain, through Deer Path Park and then to the South Branch River Preserve. Some sections were in the woods, others were open fields; the climb over Round Mountain was rocky but not difficult. There was some road walking but the roads were fairly quiet.
Now for the gotcha - there are a lot of intersecting trails in Round Mountain section and though the trails are well marked, the intersections on the map are in comprehensible and went off in the wrong direction twice adding significant mileage to the hike and we never completed the River trail section.
I will be going back; maybe starting in the south and heading north so I complete the River trail section.

I have done this hike several times and it is a pretty hike where sections walk above the Spruce run river, or around the old swimming pond (with a lot of beaver activity to be seen). The yellow trail goes back into the woods and up hill to a very rocky area for a little challenge. I recommend this for someone who wants an easy walk in a very picturesque setting

Stony Brook trail to Blue Mountain. Stay on Blue Mtn. Real nice, pine trees, streams, not difficult. Turn right on Tinsley Trail (yellow) to Swenson (red) and Blue Mtn. and back to Stony Brook (brown). Overall nice, quiet hike, no hills. Took 3 hours.
