    1. Hey Chris, I love the Sourlands, and you’ll find a comprehensive review of it on the site (along with a GR series map). That said, don’t dismiss Clayton Park. It’s lovely, about 15 minutes closer to Trenton, and provides much easier footing (Sourlands is bouldery, whereas Clayton is smooth). If you’re looking for a relaxing walk through gorgeous, mature hardwood forest, Clayton is tough to beat.

  1. Hello . Thanks for all this posts . I really enjoyed Baldpate & Clayton . I also recommend Sourland Mountain preserve( 30 minutes from Trenton) in Somerset county and Turkey Swamp where you can Kayak for $13/hour and have nice trails .
    Please do not stop these postings I really appreciate it .

  2. My dog loved this walk- there are ponds and creeks for swimming and the underbush is not super dense so there is a little less worry about ticks. Nice easy walking, too.
