River Highlands State Park, Cromwell Reviews - Write a Review

  • The trails are nice, but no mention of how far is the river and how long are the trails. Not sure if many people visit here, but the driving was worth it. Pls keep some insect repellent (many mosquitoes) when going in the trail.

  • Many trails, but some are not marked very well leaving you wondering if you are on a proper trail, a game trail or a water runoff trail. Positive side is that if you get lost, just keep walking a bit and you will run into civilization. Plus Google maps works to aide you finding your car.

  • Close to home... No Mooween or Rockland or Millers or Robinson or NathanHale or Nassahegon or Crandalls or Cowels or Meshomasic or ... yet Flowy with some interesting and challenging stuff to keep you awake and engaged... 'Bobsled Run' for Mountain Bikes is Fun... Rollercoaster section is entertaining and another Highlight of River Highlands... Mosquitoes will keep the slow riders from returning, and the faster riders from stopping and getting chatty... More 'Skinnies' Sought...

  • Great location to walk your dog or do some mountain biking. Many of the trails run parallel to the river offering quite a few beautiful views. It can get buggy in the summer though.

  • I love to be outside on the trail. Trails at River Highlands SP are well marked and there is plenty of space to stretch my legs. Come here to get outdoors.
