A great local trail to visit with kids is Black River Park Trail, located right behind Suburban Furniture. There’s a short loop trail which guides you along the pond, cross a bridge, and walk along the stream. On the left you will see a blue blazed trail; you wind around and cross the stream on another bridge, and wind up seeing a line of cedar trees. Follow them to head back to the parking area.
If you want a longer hike, once you follow the yellow trail to the end, go right and cross the stream. You will find yourself in ‘the sandpits’, a spot that makes you feel far away from home. It’s nestled between Mine Hill’s Sunset Lake and Randolph Lake. Walk between the two lakes with power lines above your head; at the end of the sandpits, stay to the left and walk along the bank of Sunset Lake. Once you wind up by Mine HIll’s beach, look to the right to see the start of Mine Hill’s orange trail. Check out the map below of the Mine Hill Trails. Stay healthy!
