New Jersey Map

Always a good challenge. We went in mid-November. Good idea to bring gloves for balancing your weight on rocks as you climb up the red trail. My hiking boots were great in the melted snow/slush and rocky terrain. Depending on the weather trail runner/sneakers might work but definitely not regular sneakers and don't even think about flip flops.

We went after it rained the night before...was about 48 degrees. Walking sticks are good for this hike. Wasn't too slippery. The view was obscured by the mist but it was pretty cool to be up in the clouds! Will head up another time to get the view.

One of best So. Jersey hikes .includes mysterious Mt. Korbar. and then the snow capped peak of The Apple Pie
Hill (when there's snow). way, way
too bad they blocked access to the fire tower (asshole kids). Start early in winter.

Great trail for a woods adventure.
fr/ Batsto up to the Bridge is a nice stretch, and the walk back reminds one of his or her feet. there are some really nice vistas for such a flat trail. We
flatlanders can't get much nicer
forestry places than this . Of course the trail (Batona) does go a lot farther.

Great trail, as good as a suburban park can be. Great usage of reclaimed land.
Plaudits to Northfield City Gov. for
allowing it all to thrive.

I enjoyed this hike. My dog also approves.

I wouldn’t consider the entire loop “easy”. Plenty of steep spots going up and down that may be difficult for some.

The box of trail maps was empty when we went
I followed the blue trail south, up the mountain east, and around. At the summit (marked on a tree) the blue trail turns into the white trail and splits two ways going down the mountain. The view at the overlook isn’t that spectacular considering it’s mostly blocked by trees. Still, it’s a beautiful place. Sometimes the trail on the ground isn’t obvious, just keep an eye on the markers on the trees.
It was about an hour and a half, although we stopped a few times to play fetch.

Had a fine hike. Lookout to manhattan was great. Lots of water (soggy) yes, but well marked.

A vey nice mini-hike. More of a comfortable walk with some added beauty. Although, I'm a bit spoiled having been raised in the Cascade Mountain Range. Interesting marshes and bird of prey nests. The water of the bay, though. how disappointing.

Easily a local favorite. Has always been well kept with easy access to other activities.

Pay attention to some side trails, the first that you come to provides a more private and slightly rocky view of the Delaware. nice wide trail, could definitely be a crowded spot during warm weather.

Nice easy walk for later in the day.

Beautiful place excellent trails well marked can spend a whole day there if you wanted too. Highly recommend for all level hikers.

nothing about this trail is moderate, easy at best. muddy but flat. highly traveled by mountain bikers who take over the trail.

Nothing more then an asphalt path around a quarter of baseball fields.

Great little adventure. Gorgeous views

Not much of a trail. Should be combined with other trails as All Trails app has you walking down road on return. Over all nice wide level paths. Some muddy areas in northern corner.

Still a good hike as of 11-18, but could be improved. The state needs to tear down junky shed-like buildings (including one with a dead pay phone) at the eastern end of the reservoir. The campgrounds here feel abandoned, and the trail route gets murky through this area. Although county and state trails do not officially connect, you must connect them to complete the loop. Though technically illegal, they are easy to connect. Lovely as Round Valley is, it is a good example of an underfunded NJ state park. Signage is dated, appearance a bit shabby.

Mostly open fields on a hillside farm. Small portion is through a wooded area which is slightly rocky. Boots a must do to muddy areas and horse poop.

great, i will walk it agin.

Very steep at times and trail led to a steep dead end which was a little nerve wracking but over all very pretty! No leaves allowed for overlooking the valley and stream was pretty.

walk this Trail me and my girlfriend pretty challenging Trail would do it again

Huge parking area with port-a-potty, defined trail with blazers. Low impact, some elevation with great view of the Delaware river and Rancocas creek. Great birding with a ton of huge bird nests (Eagles and Osprey) Many meditation benches, lite trash observed. Fishing ops available. Leave footprints!

Beautiful scenery and clearly marked trails. Bikes and walkers get separate trails which is pretty nice!

Great with the kids. They love the available playgrouds and the grassy hill to run up & down. Dog friendly with an enclosed dog park too.

Good trail and nice views. The white trail is over grown with brush.

Nice hike, did it in early November, beautiful foliage and the lake.

Nice trail to hike. Eerily beautiful in the winter. I made a walking stick and left it at the entrance. enjoy.

Took the Purple trail around the pond. Fairly easy but nice hike overall. Trails were a little sloppy from bikers and views are limited, but the historic markers are cool.

Hiked Blue Mtn. from Stony Brook (brown) to Tinsley (yellow). Nice Pine Trees, streams, peaceful. Trail not that rocky.

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.
