Lewis Morris County Park: Four Bridges Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"If you enjoy the sound of water tumbling over rocks and admiring a beautiful stream, you’ll love the Four Bridges hike at Lewis Morris County Park. Along this meandering densely wooded trail, you’ll actually cross five bridges over babbling brooks, although the trail is named Four Bridges! No doubt, you’ll also spot squirrels, chipmunks, and if you’re lucky, a deer or bear. Named for the first governor of New Jersey, the park—the first in the Morris County Park System—opened in 1958. At that time, it consisted of 350 acres; today it has grown to 1154 acres.

Miles of hiking trails await visitors, but there is much more for the outdoor enthusiast in this vast park, including equestrian trails, swimming, boating, fishing, softball fields, a parcourse fitness circuit, sledding and ski touring, a Saturn playground, picnic sites, and a group camping area. You’ll return again and again, especially for the excellent hiking opportunities."

There are several trails available to access off this park, ranging from 1.5 to 6.0 miles. The trails go through a nice wooded area, with several brooks in the area. Some parts of the trail are technical with loose rocks or exposed roots. The trails are also used by mountain bikes, so watch for overused parts.
