“Go for a run along the majestic Musconetcong River.”— Mirek Wierzbicki
However, if you're in the mood for an adventure, the Blue Trail is well worth your while.
From the junction with the Orange Trail, the Blue Trail leaves the fields to make a westerly journey through wild, fairly unmaintained country rife with tall grass, spiky bushes, and thickets. After fighting the undergrowth for a few minutes, the trail finally pops through the dense forest to reach the Musconetcong River. From the river, enjoy gorgeous views along this peaceful, majestic waterway as you reap your reward.
Upon reaching the junction with Point Mountain Road, those who wish to cut their time short and return to the main parking area can do so by following the road left (south) for a short distance.
Continuing past the road on the Blue Trail, it meanders along the river for a short distance before looping north to enjoy the last bit of temperate hardwood forest before reaching the parking area.
