Round Valley Recreation Area Trails Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Round Valley Reservoir didn’t exist before 1958. What did exist was a natural horseshoe-shaped valley nestled in the rolling hills of Hunterdon County. Hardly anyone gave a thought to this hole in the ground—until it was filled with 55 billion gallons of water.

Today, besides providing drinking water for the surrounding area, the 70-foot-deep reservoir is used by anglers, who are hooked on the smallmouth bass, sunfish, and rainbow trout, as well as by boaters, scuba divers, swimmers, and picnickers. A year-round treasure, the reservoir also attracts winter enthusiasts who love ice sports, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and sledding. For hikers, the recreation area offers trails ranging from very easy to moderate."

I did not enjoy hiking here. The trails were very dull compared to others in NJ.

I had decided to go camping with a few friends at round valley and i warn everyone before they think that their innocently camping out of their car that it is a three mile hike to the campsite. Dont get me wrong i love to hike but not when your not prepared to literally hike four miles in sandals!! the overall trail was amazing and a great workout but definitely be prepared to go up and down some rocky hills

This was a very nice little trail if you don't have time to go on an all day hike. It was only 2.5 miles, a little snow on the ground. We did the Pine Tree trail and the Shoreline trail, and there were a few ups and downs, lots of nice views of the reservoir, and we were shielded from the wind on the shoreline trail, which was nice since it was 24 degrees out. There were not many people there, but I have tried to get into the park in the summer and it was full, so I imagine it would be crowded in the better weather. Nice for winter, tho.
