The Wonderland Lake Park is a great place to go for a short hike, and is conveniently located in North Boulder with ample parking.

Splitrock Reservoir is about an hour drive from Jersey City if you don’t get caught in traffic. The loop around the reservoir, which looks like a lake, is about 11 miles long.
Veach Gap Trail was not too strenuous, but enough of a hike to get good exercise, and had gorgeous views at the top. Even though there were many people visiting, there are a few viewpoint spots at the top, providing enough space for everyone to enjoy the view.
