Our Trails

Flat Rock Brook’s 3.6 miles of trails offer a variety of opportunities for hiking, birdwatching, trail running and other recreation in a beautiful Oak-Hickory forest along the western slope of the Palisades Ridge. A network of self-guiding trails leads to a cascading stream, wetlands, pond, wildflower meadows, quarry cliffs and woodlands. Visitors can observe a remarkable array of birds and other wildlife in their natural habitats. The trails are easy to moderate in difficulty and wind throughout the preserve. Our trails are well marked with colored metal blazes that correspond to trails on our map. Free trail maps are available at both the Nature Center and Jones Road entrance.
