The 2065-acre Watchung Reservation has 13 miles of blazed trails, 26 miles of bridle trails, and more than 40 miles of unmarked trails—plenty of space for you and Bowser to explore. With many access points, the white-blazed Sierra Trail has a lot of company—wild and tame. If your dog is well behaved on a leash, you both will enjoy the excursion.
Hike down the paved Cataract Hollow Road through the Deserted Village of Feltville, an 1840s mill town. The road through the village is the white-blazed Sierra Trail, which becomes a dirt bridle trail as it enters the woods after Masker’s Barn, the last historic building. It runs through sun-dappled woods, heavy in birch and American beech trees.
