  • Took a trip here with the two dogs and enjoyed the fall colors and nice hiking trails. The trails were not too crowded and they were marked well. Enjoyed the day,  more »
  • First time at HackleBarney and I truly loved it. Had no map but just followed the red trail markers which did lead you to the water and very rocky trail. many people on trails so I did not worry about...  more »
  • I took my one year old and a good part of the hike is paved up until the natural area. She's good with hiking anyway but other than the stairs down to the trail people with difficulty walking would be...  more »
  • We had a really great time. We brought the kids (4 and 7) and the dog. Lots of other dogs there. Almost every other group we encountered also had a dog. Beautiful place. Was a little worried when we started our hike. It seemed crowded with a couple large groups bbq-ing. But once on the red trail we didn't see anyone for a while and it got real pretty real fast. Several cascades and waterfalls along the very rocky Black River. The trail runs right along the river bank so lots of access. We went all the way and connected to whit trail and then yellow, which brought us up a nice hill and back around to the parking lot. Everybody got a nice little work out. But over all I would rate everything easy. A couple time it would get up to moderate by the river because of the rocks. Nice park though in a very bucolic part of NJ. The whole ride in was beautiful. Gotta love that Cider Mill Farm on the way out for apple cider donuts and strawberry lemonade! Really pretty farm! Nice day. Everyone loved it. Someone left a big pile of garbage in the playground that an animal got into. That was gross. But otherwise a clean beautiful park with nice trails.
  • This park is always clean and has something for the whole family. The blue trail offers a nice stroll and the red trail offers a bit of challenge with rocks but runs all along the length of the river. The waterfalls are great here. It can get pretty busy but it attracts a nice crowd of people.
  • So many trees and beautifully done trails. Rarely do I see trash on the trail, unless it is in the unpaved, hunting area. I just take a bucket to pick up after the idiots without respect for the park. I give 4 starts instead of 5 just because it would be nice to have one paved trail for wheel chair access.
  • relaxing walk in nature. loved the bird sounds. saw a deer on the drive there
  • Great dog friendly heavily wooded park for hikes on paved trails from easy to navigating rock trail along the water. Great location for photography.
