|Park Description:|| |
This multi-use park, with Lake Henry at its western edge, is owned by Mahwah Township. Ramapo Valley County Reservation and the Darlington Schoolhouse, headquarters of the Trail Conference, are nearby.
|Trails Overview:|| |
In back of the playing fields is a little known lake with a mile-long flat circular path around it, complete with two broad bridges over the Ramapo River. The hike is just long enough to clear a head or reduce blood pressure
To extend the hike, an open field at the northern edge of the lake goes to another parking lot at Halifax Road, which leads to a mowed path paralleling the Ramapo River.
After heavy rains, the pathway nearest Continental Soldiers Field can become very muddy.
Take Ramapo Valley Road [US 202] about two miles south of NJ 17 in Mahwah, turn right into Continental Soldiers Park. Ample parking is available at the playing fields.
A separate small dirt parking area is off Halifax Road just before crossing the Ramapo River. Halifax Road is north of the park off US 202.
