Excersice, Family Time & Fresh Air At Kittatinny Valley State Park
For a great, flat and relatively shaded 5-mile roundtrip walk, park at the ample trailhead parking area right on Route 206 North (just a bit north past Limecrest Road), walk for just under a mile and cross Goodale Road and then walk on the trail for another 1.5 miles to Yates Ave before you loop back to your starting point. The Goodale Road park entrance/parking area (Goodale Road is just a little further up north on 206) puts you on the Sussex Branch trail at about 1.5 miles from that Route 206 trailhead parking area and the walk to and back from Yates Ave. is about a 3.5 mile round-trip walk.
