This is a hidden gem. Several trails and ponds to explore. We saw a deer, chipmunks, birds, squirrels, ducks and a goose. It was peaceful and with the fall foliage it was a gorgeous walk.

Place was not crowded on a Saturday late morning. Some kids had set up to do some fishing. Area was well maintained. Perfect place to go for a walk and take in some nature.

Needed something to do with my 16 year old daughter who likes hiking. This is more of a series of nature walks through marked-off paths. Nothing all that special, but something to occupy an hour. There is a small lake as well where you can...More

Visited the trails after 3-4 years - what a change - outstanding work done by the Closter Nature Center. Went two or three times in a 3 week period and the trails were amazing. The blue, orange and green trails were favorites. Previously always walked...More
