Nice trail and outing with the family. Just enough adventure for the littlest hiker. Not a lot of views, but great wooded trail for the kids to explore.

Nice quiet trail

Nice short flat hike. Ocean views, two different times. Beautiful area.

My absolute favorite hiking trail in New Jersey. Beautiful selection of wildflowers. Spectacular views, unique hiking experience. Wear bug spray as mosquitoes can be a problem in the wet season. Parking can be tricky so avoid peak times. Hike very early in the morning or late in the afternoon on weekends.

My wife and i did this trail with our cub scout troup and it is an excellent trail for kids. Lots of wildlife.

One of my favorite spots to go for a nice run, but only during late fall, winter, and early spring!!!! Once it starts to get hot out the horse flies and other bugs come out! I made the mistake of running in late June, one of the worst experiences. I’ve never run so fast to get out of there. If you go during the other seasons it’s great. It’s a flat easy marked trail with beautiful scenery.

A nice walking trail. Go at sunrise or sunset.

nice and easy trail. accompanied by the soothing sounds of the river. very level and good for all activities

be prepared for lots of rocks

The pyramid mountain trail system is really beautiful. The trails are well marked and neatly groomed, and there are varying levels of terrain for hikers of different ability. It's perfect for hiking and snowshoeing. That being said, please be aware that there are copperhead snakes present in the area. Obviously this is not the park's fault or responsibility, hikers are guests in the wildlife's home. We were so focused on keeping an eye out for foxes, bears, and deer that snakes didn't even come to mind and our puppy got bitten by one. We got him to the animal shelter for an anti-venom treatment ASAP, and he's going to be okay. I just wanted to make people aware of something I stupidly didn't think twice about.

I did the blue loop. For runners: Beautiful and well-marked trail. Lots of roots and a significant- though not impassable- amount of mud, so watch your step and be prepared to get a little muddy. For everyone else: Super lush woods, great views, and lots of wildlife to check out.

Improperly marked trails that changed colors without warning, really narrow trails with brush overgrowing, crawling with mosquitoes, and not a lot of sights to see. Wasn't a fan.

- Nice trail, overall.
- A little confusing to navigate in parts, especially with so many intersecting roads and paths, but doable if you print a map in advance or use a phone for directions.
- Not too many changes in elevation; pretty easy for all ages.
- The falls and view from Washington Rock were nice, but nothing too memorable. Otherwise, not much else to see along the way.
- LOTS of bugs. Must bring bug spray!

Take the green trail top the top... see the cacti...

It's an ok trail for hiking, great for mountain biking.

Loved it. It is in shade and pretty clearly marked. I believe steepness depends on how long the legs are on the person you ask. Views were breathtaking. Worth it.

8/16/2018 Orange trail completely flooded out today. At least a foot of water over the trail as far as you can see starting just past the trail head. I’ve never been here before but looks like it would be nice if it wasn’t flooded.

Great spot to hike
Trail marking could be better but great experience overall

A nice challenge. Starts off easy with a beautiful walk through marshlands, then concludes with a steep, fairly rigorous climb to a hilltop vantage point with great views of the entire valley.

In the middle forested 1mi., we ran into a horrendous amount of mosquitoes. We had 20+ bites each. Definitely bring repellant, especially if it's rained recently!

Fantastic trail!! Great workout headed up the red dot trail and incredible scenery toward the end of the blue dot on the way back. I was traveling through on a business trip and I am so glad that I took the time to do this hike! Good trail shoes are a must - it’s very rocky and slippery if wet.

been here a couple of times. great park. is this the same biking trail?

Awesome views of Pennsylvania from the NJ side of the water gap. The trail can be rough in some places. Check out my full write up which includes directions and things to look out for.

My second trail. Very nice. So many deer. Clean picnic area. Very peaceful. There’s also a red trail.

great trail for walking or biking.

It’s an easy trail but a good 5 miles walk. Many chances to stop and take few good pictures. Benches on the trail helps to spend some time inside the quiet forest area. Will be back again.

Cove trail was ok but there was a lot of trash.

7 days ago

There's garbage everywhere including but not limited to broken beer bottles and crack pipes.

Saw some deer though

Beautiful views definitely reccomend.
