A really cool waterfall, an up-close-and-personal view of the Hudson River, and if you hike the Giant Stairs, an amazing view of the cliffs along the river. This trail is handicap-accessible all the way to the first waterfall about a third of a mile in , so everyone can enjoy the beauty of the Delaware Water Gap. You are currently logged in as.

The 5 best child, infant, and stroller friendly hikes in Northern New Jersey
Limited parking but spaces turn over. A kinda confusing spiderweb of trails, so make sure you take a map for navigation. No views or nothing, but relatively wide trails and far fewer people on a Saturday morning than Hartshorne Woods. Mostly flat with a few gentle grades.
Not much for scenery, but a nice walk in the woods. Be sure to grab one of the trail maps. It can be a little confusing finding your way around. I prefer the farm path section since it's a bit more open. Easy, haha, not when you get to Tiger Woods. Overall a great workout. If you park at the smaller entrance along Jones road there is a playground and the trailhead there is perfect for kids. I love coming here with my 2 year old. This is a loop of Lakewood's Lake Carasaljo, named for three children that drowned in it years ago.
On the south side are additional exercise stops. The north side is tight for cars if driving, but lead past the grand Georgian court College where you can view the "inlet" which I remember from the sequel film to Amityville in the late 70s early 80s. Nice variety of trail loop options.
Why do I have to complete a CAPTCHA?
Indoor bathrooms at the Environmental Education Center. Getting a bit further from the parking lot and the lake thins the crowds as well.
This is a perfect walk with kids and a dog. You will almost always see two swans at the lake and deer are often in the area. For a longer walk, ditch the stroller and continue past the dam up the mountain and loop back down past an awesome viewpoint over the area and on clear days the NYC skyline. Little children will love the lake, animals, and the wooden bridges over the water here.
Go Take a Hike (in New Jersey)!
Though not especially stroller friendly, if you are adventurous you can make it work. From the parking lot up on Skyline drive, the trail is paved all the way down to the lake and dam though fairly tough on the way back due to the climb. If your kids are weirdos like mine and enjoy the bouncing, it can work. The stone towers still stand here as does a swimming pool which is now overgrown with plants. Or were they ever there at all? Not much of a hike, but exploring the falls of Paterson is also a great experience with kids and can be done with a stroller.
