Beautiful day for a trail walk but on the trail that was off Reed Rd. there was many wet swampy areas that were difficult to navigate. Past weather conditions could have created these areas but may try different parts of trail again!

I checked out this trail for the first time today and was favorably impressed. I parked at the Rosedale Park access, which I would do again. There was ample parking, restrooms, and a water fountain.

The trail itself, at least the parts I explored, is crushed gravel for a smooth ride. There are many scenic stretches and a few minor inclines. I even passed another restroom at about 2.8 miles for added convenience. The trail was also sparsely occupied on a Friday afternoon and I only encountered a few other people.

My one criticism is that the signage could be improved. I know at least one prior reviewer has noted the same thing. More than once I had to backtrack and find the trail again. It is no big deal if you know the trail well already but it can be annoying the first time you visit so be vigilant.

I am so grateful that this bike trail exists. I run and bike on it at least 2x per week. It is nice to get away from traffic and be able to run or bike for long stretches without worrying about bad/distracted drivers. And the trail goes through a variety of locations, some of which are simple, unspoiled woods. My favorite stretch is from Mercer Meadows, past Hunt House, to Rosedale Lake.

this is a great area to walk, bike, jog or picnic. Pet friendly and they have a fenced in dog park where you can let you dog off their leash to run. Also have a doggy water fountain.

There are lots of trails both long and short. It is very quiet and peaceful as it sits way back from the road ecept for the few spots where it crosses. The best part about the trail is it crosses paths with the watershed which is another great amenity to any outdoor enthusiast.

Great place to walk or better to ride a bike. Safe and peaceful. Great family activity during the nice weather. We usually start at the Lawrenceville park or in Hopewell.

Is this attraction for the visitors? Probably not, rather for the local folks who live near by.

Our group of four humans and one beagle walked the ETS leg of the LHT. It is on the ETS campus and the general direction of the trail is indicated by a couple of small signs. We weren't really sure where to start, and asked several people walking the campus (presumably ETS staff) but none of those we spoke to had heard of the LHT or knew that a part of it was on the campus. So we meandered, finally finding a way to get down to the creek bed, and did end up finding the trail. It was lovely: quiet, peaceful, and it really felt removed from the nearby hustle and bustle. Improving the signage would be a great public service by ETS, as would having this project taken on for Eagle Scout eligibility. Even without better signs, however, it's a great place to take a walk.
