Near the rugged Ramapo Mountain State Forest, this greenway along the Saddle River offers a contrasting network of flat, paved paths.
For hikers or walkers, the six-mile paved path that connects five locations is the attraction, making possible a pleasant greenway on a nearly flat path along the Saddle River in the center of Bergen County, with no street crossings. Trail maps and brief descripions for each segment of the park, published by the Bergen County Department of Parks, are available online.
