“Flat easy multipurpose trail”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Horses, bikes, walkers, rollerbladers, soccer and baseball fields are all welcome at Loantaka. It runs from South Street in Morris Twp. all the way to the Green Village Post office. There are several parking areas. There is a kid's jungle jim and a gazebo for picnics. There are actually two trails here, one is paved and the other is dirt and gravel. Both entire trails are flat, so it would be rated easy for anyone to use. A majority of the trail has tree cover. There is a pond and a brook which runs through the whole park. It is clean and safe. I bring my dogs here, but don't allow them to swim, as I don't think the water quality is good, because there is a sewage treatment plant nearby.

“Nice walk”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Nice set of trails with a park on one side and a pond on the other, complete with a swan. Nice place to bike or take a stroller.

“Bike,Hike or Walk Your Pooch (on leash)”
Reviewed 8 May 2013

This is a beautiful series of trails and paths. There are paved paths for biking and pushing a stroller and dirt paths for those of you who prefer a more out of the way trail. If you are quiet, you will see deer, foxes, herons and geese. My children always liked walking in the creeks.

“Great strolling, bike riding and dog walking”
Reviewed 8 April 2013

Unique park - very long and narrrow snaking along the loantaka river. A charming and very safe place to bike - especially with young children. It feels like you are in wilderness - well almost.

“Nice for families”
Reviewed 19 February 2013

Really nice park with lots of room to roam and a lovely hiking/horse path. Kids love to stop at the pond to watch the geese. You might encounter a horse while walking and that's fun, too.
