Ready to get out there in nature, but want (or need) to take your kids with you? No problem! While many may envision a good hike as one with steep inclines, rocky scrambling, and long trails, a good hike can happen with little elevation gain and be under just one mile.

These seven trails in New Jersey are short and kid-friendly, but still enjoyable, fun, and pretty.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.

Of course, make sure you look up each trail before heading on it to see how accessible it is during your season of choice — you never know if a specific hike will get too muddy or slippery!
