I'm not sure what more you could want from your local neighborhood park! It has a wonderful duck pond, bike trails, jogging/walking trails, a play set for the kids, soccer field, baseball fields and pavilions with grills. The trails wind their way around streams, fields and the pond and are mostly shaded. There are enough people around that you never... More

This is a lovely park for walking, biking, picnicking, and just relaxing. Can get a bit crowded on the nicest days, but not usually a problem. One tip for bikers: Beware of people walking their dogs on too long leashes.

Pleasant shaded, flat paths. A stream, a duck pond. Choose your time wisely. Favorite of lunch walkers, evening joggers, morning moms with strollers. Parking tight some evenings with softball, soccer, and bicycling devotees filling the South St lot. Great example of what to do with a pipeline right of way.

A great area located in Morristown/Chatham that has trails and a playground at one end. Fun outing to go bike or hike and head into Morristown. Trails are paved and maintained.

The park has paved trails with the tallest trees. Walking through the fall colors was magical. The lake and trails around it are great to stop and look for wildlife. Great to walk your dog. The park has a pavilion that you can rent for the afternoon from morris county parks and have a group picnic. Feel fortunate to have... More

Have been going for walks in Loantaka for 20+ years. You feel like you are out in a faraway wood out of the hustle & bustle. During winter after winter snow falls, the trails are not ploughed immediately and gets slippery / dangerous. Hence I avoid going there till snow melts.

Loantaka is a local gem. There are a number of hiking/biking trails as well as bird ponds and athletic fields.

A part of the Morris County Park Commission, this park has great trails for walking & cycling. They are paved and some connect to Patriot's Path. It's wooded, scenic and even has a few lakes, streams and ponds. Open from Dawn to Dusk, you can have a picnic lunch and/or let the kids play at the playground. If you contact... More

A wonderful place to take a short and leisurely walk, a peaceful run, or a bike ride. This is a beautiful reservation with a varied landscape that changes beautifully with the seasons. Dog friendly and kid friendly with a nice children's park. There are benches along the paths if you want to rest or simply take a minute to enjoy... More
