lots of deviation for red trail but pretty

It’s short trail but I got in confused. I don’t see small yellow symbol with mark mileage. I went off trail not in right way. I depend on my alltrails app. I don’t want to depend on my alltrails app. But I will depend on it for while until I experience with trails.

Excellent trail for beginners. Has a little of everything, rocky, muddy and short accents. Nice views of the lake on the backside of the hike. The hike mostly is through the woods. Quiet and calming hike. Great surprise during my hike....I encountered a Great Horned Owl! Made my day!

Cooper Union Trail. Cool breeze and great overlook

I went from the parking lot up the red trail, left on yellow, left on unmarked trail to the waterfall then back on red. trail was definitely muddy, but a good scramble. only saw 1 other hiker the whole time. enjoyed it.

slipppery and socked in but worth the drive and the climb!

this track followed the orange blazes. lots of opportunities for side trails.

Trails are very different... blue is rocky and close to the water... red is popular with people who walk their dogs... orange is right by a beautiful creek but very messy to get to... yellow and blue will take you to most of the other trails... black is pretty flat but beautiful views. Love this place

Great trail mix...beach, ocean, woods, ponds, etc. Wood trails likely overgrown during summer and ticks more active.

You are in a park that has trails. The yellow borders the park. So your view is a gate with “no trespassing” on it. The views are of corporate office buildings, apartment complexes and of private homes. Not recommended for the trail hikers, perfect for beginners venturing out of concrete parks.

very cool burnt trees in the beginning of the hike, and ends with views of a lake. Saw cute dogs and lots of green with the pines. great for a day hike

Great trail for dogs. A lot of spots to enjoy the view of the water. Very easy and flat. Unmarked and easy the go off trail. Make sure to use the recorder on the app.

Easy trails, dog friendly, good for kids

not crowded, rocky and short trail. Just 2 view points and not really impressive but it's still worth it to go there.

Great trail love being able to walk down by the Maurice River

Nice trail, lots of ups and downs. Interesting ruins of maybe hunting cabins. The trail markers are confusing and no trail exists for almost half of the smaller loop. At the smaller loop We had to turn around and go back the way we came, from the road there was no trail. We tried bushwhacking but found a brook impossible to cross in the winter. We were satisfied with the hike and would recommend. Just beware on the smaller loop.

Love this park. Nice view of Long Valley and waterfall.

Can’t go wrong walking down any path at this park year round. Beautiful views and wonderful wildlife. Watch what time of year you are visiting because the sand flys, ticks and other bugs will eat you alive. Great trip for the whole family. Entire trail is flat surface unless you offtrail onto some of the beach areas. Visitors center is impressive and has lots of activities for children and a small aquarium.

5th beat dog park in the country. Love this place

Yes, the trail goes behind 287 so it is going to be loud. Yes, this is located in northern NJ so there will be bears (probably black bears) and other animals (hawks, etc.) It can get steep at some points so do not attempt if you have pre-existing injuries or small children. Beautiful view at the summit and rewarding forest views along the way.
