  • Lovely trails! What a sight to see these old military bunkers. The trails could be marked a little better but all in all a great mild hike. We enjoyed the trail very much!

  • Hartshorne Woods Park is a beautiful hilly wooded 794 acre site overlooking the Navesink River. This park is one of the highest elevations along the Atlantic Coast and was a coastal defense site for the NY harbor because of this. I was able to climb to the top of the Lewis Overlook and enjoy the scenic views. It’s a great place to run, ride your bike and walk your dog. The trees provide a lot of shade. You can stay on the wide paved paths or venture in the woods. Fun Fact: Hartshorne Woods Park has the most extensive and challenging trails in the Monmouth County Park System; over 15 miles.
  • Wonderful walking paths,and beautiful views. Great place for my little dog and I to walk and hang with nature 2 things: Beware of the ticks Avoid the weekends if possible. (Tends to get crowded.) Winter walks are peaceful and quiet!
