  • Duke Farms is in Hillsborough, NJ, just south of Somerville. It is free for all, but dogs aren't allowed. Bikers are welcome too. The land is part of the estate of the belated Doris Duke, daughter of ...  more »
  • We drove over an hour to wind up walking in an average park. Yes it was dry and the waterfalls were non-existent. The Orchid house was nice. For bike riders the paths are mainly paved. However, the sc...  more »

  • We spent our afternoon at duke farms and it was a glorious day all around. The estate is gorgeous, well kept and beautifully marked with trails and interesting historical and botanical information. There were at least a dozen excellent farm stands with fresh local vegetables, pastas, breads, meats, jams and jellies. There are walking paths, bike rentals and even a tram so people of all ages could easily enjoy the farm. We can't wait to get back!
  • Fantastic. The staff is so friendly and inviting that you wish you could stay all night. The volunteers are knowledgeable and enthusiastic and the place is amazing. You have to visit. You will love the laid-back atmosphere and beautiful setting.
  • Duke Farms has been closed to the public for quite some time. It's only within the past few years that they've reopened and thank goodness they have. The scenery is stunning with beautiful lakes, trees, flowers and more. I've seen turtles, cranes, herons and a huge variety of butterflies and other birds in past visits. The park has a plethora of bike and hiking trails for you to explore. Parking is free and you can BYOB (Bring your own Bike) or rent a bike for cheap. The Orchid House is really amazing and a great spot for pictures. My girlfriend really enjoys practicing macro-photography there. Duke Farms is definitely a must-visit for any Central New Jersey resident.
  • Great place for a bike ride or a hike! Don't have a bike? No worries they will rent you one. Beautiful flowers and views. We love to find a shady spot for a picnic lunch
  • Great place for hiking and used to be good place to bring toddler for fun tram ride. Now they only allow tram rides for people with disabilities. Still great place, but my son gets upset when he sees tram going, but can't ride on it. I guess they are trying to cut expenses, which is understandable.
