Hilly hiking, a nice swimming lake, many picnic areas, some mountain cycling in a near to Morristown package. But it's part of the County Park System that boasts all very good to excellent sites and suffers some from the lack of vistas.

They promote on their web site paddle boats...however, they fail to mention, kids need to be 14 years old to use the paddle boat (unless with someone aged 18.) We paid the $28 in cash, and no one ever told us about the age 14...More

This park is amazing, but... the trails are not properly marked in all places. And there are bear there sometimes, which have threatened visitors. *** Getting Lost: I could almost guarantee that eventually you will get lost or be very confused if you go far...More

We stopped here on a whim, to stretch our legs and expected a nice walk--very surprised at the quality of the trails for walkers, mountain bikers and families. There's even a small lake/beach to enjoy (small fee, we didn't go swimming). Could spend all day...More

Hi, I recently did my first race at this park and loved it. Lots of fast hard packed single track and some good climbs and descents. It was a lot of fun!

This park is a great place to ride tour bike. The guys from the bike shop Marty's made some really good events there. Highly recommend.
