Went with my 10 yr old, nothing spectacular but not a bad hike either.

PROS:
Saw a beaver
Beautiful nature
Trail was of varying slopes
not crowded
fun to walk with my 12 y/o daughter
the terrain kept us guessing, made it fun
Not too long, easy time away in nature on a weekday evening

CONS:
Muddy in spots

Remarkable display at the nature center. Wide variety of animal life. Worth many visits in all seasons.

I've never stepped in as much dog poop in my life. Didn't see any interesting birds.

I hired a trail guide to bird watch the trail with me... She was a snot. I saw a lot of great birds... No thanks to her.

Good trail minus all the dog poop on it. I really wish people would clean up after their dogs. It's inexcusable. Trail would be great for families with young kids. Not too long and stretch along the Normanskill is beautiful.

I made this hike in February. The nearby highway is audible the whole time. Houses are visible throughout the hike.

Nice easy hike for the kids
Nice cold January day

Nice easy walk and pretty in the fall. I went with my sister and nieces, ages 7 to 2 1/2 and they managed just fine. The path we took was called Beaver Tree Trail

No dogs but not clearly marked.

Trails are suitable for almost anyone but I found the trails to be rather confusing. There's a number of junctures that you can get easily lost at. That being said. It was fun and you can see a lot of wildlife: deer, turtles, ducks, chipmunks, rabbits and squirrels galore. I think I may have seen a beaver but... it ran away! :(

Nice easy hike through the woods.

fun trails lots of fish, turtles, rabbits, deer and birds

Went there today with my 4 and 6 year old daughter and son for their "first hike" ... did the Vlomankill Trail ... this was perfect for the little ones. We ended coming back on the bird watching path down to the Beaver Tree path over the river. All the trails are very well maintained. It was a bit hot and didn't see to much wildlife, but I will definitely come here again.

Very pretty, lots of wildlife, perfect hike with young kids!

Our family visits Five Rivers periodically throughout the year. Great trails for the whole family, and lots of spaces for impromptu picnics. Only downfall is that they have construction going on now, but, the good side is it looks like they are expanding the environmental center and parking lot for future visitors!

Go every few weeks. Seen the beavers. Nice trails, quick and easy hikes.

Awesome

Nice walk by normans kill, great place to walk dog. Be aware trail is divided in two halves and other entrance is posted at the trailhead.

Super friendly staff! Great for kids!!

super nice. good for all ages. north loop is a nice 2 mile walk,a bit muddy at times . Hiking boots or old sneakers good. Very clean and marked well all over.

Did this not to long ago had fun ... Nice little hill to climb but was cool

the trails are much more extensive than this listing suggests. I went more than 5 miles, and could have done more. I'm glad I decided to explore 5 Rivers.

I've been coming here since I was a child with school fieldtrips, Girl Scouts, and family/friends. The flat, easy trails make this ideal for beginners and children. Be sure to check out the visitor center.

Great for children! Go into the buildings and see the birds both alive and stuffed.

Beautiful park but I probably won't be back anytime soon. I hike with my dog and this park was posted no pets!

Very nice and maintained trails. All trails loop and intertwined so you could do one large round about. Lots of wildlife, few deer. Overall nice trail.
