Hacklebarney State Park, which consists of 465 acres of beautiful woodlands and forests, offers hikers scenic trails with views of deep rocky ravines and waterfalls along Trout Brook which flows down to the Black River. We found the stone steps leading down the ravines to the brook are rather steep; good for exercise. Along the brook and trails are tables... More

I always seem to visit Hacklebarney State Park when it's raining. There are probably reasons for this, but I can now say for certain that it's as nice in wet weather as well as in sunny weather. The trails are generally in good condition, although my favorite trails (down by the Black River) are pretty washed out (but still passable... More

Hacklebarney is a pretty place, but some of the trails are tricky if not treacherous. Once you get done rambling there's nothing else to do. We don't really find it the most comfortable of the local parks but worth a visit if you are a dedicated hiker.

We decided to take the most challenging path and it did get a little hairy! It was worth it. I loved the picnic tables everywhere!

Hacklebarney is the only place I will walk when the temperature is unbearable here in New Jersey. It is bordering a river so it always stays cool. The trails go down to the river and then up. You can continue up and down for over an hour of walking. Our dog loves it too. She can always get a drink.... More

Nice trails. Local park to where I live. Husband enjoyed going there to take pictures of the stream and small water falls - very peaceful. Picnic area available and paved parking lot.

This is a lovely small park with really good small waterfalls. Some nice easy trails too! I've been here a couple of times with relatives and really enjoy it. Usually seems pretty quiet too! The walk down the rocks is great...you can act like a kid again!

This is a nice park for a walk with your dog. I havent run into many other people and the trail i took followed a river down to a small waterfall with plenty of spots for our dog to cool down in the water.
