Saddle River County Park is a 6-mile, 596 acre linear park that extends from the Wild Duck Pond in Ridgewood down to Rochelle Park in Bergen County, New Jersey. There are 5 sections between which the multi-use Saddle River Path travels between.

The Saddle River Path is paved, flat and follows alongside the Saddle River. In many sections, there are homes and businesses visible from the path, but through a series of bridges and underpasses, pedestrians and cyclist are able to travel the entire path without crossing traffic.

I met up with the Take A Hike NJ group at the Northernmost trail-head in Ridgewood’s Wild Duck Pond. We all brought our dogs…this is a dog friendly park with plenty of trash cans and benches along the way. In the Duck Pond area, there is also a fenced-in dog run. We walked most of the way to Glen Rock and back.
