Description: Cherry Hill has done an admirable job of creating a series of 10 trails on local public land (not counting the county parks within its boarders). This is not the crown jewel of the system.
This trail is a 0.2 of a mile straight shot across an open field, with houses on the sides of the field, and a playground at the end. A small shootoff trail goes about 0.1 of a mile… to the head of another street.
This is a nice little paved stroll for the neighborhood to use to walk dogs, for little kids to ride their bikes, or for strollers to be pushed, but if you don’t live in that neighborhood, it’s not worth going to see.
There is a nice little playground at the end of one of the trails for those that do live in the neighborhood.
Overall recommendation: Nice (very) local neighborhood stroll, but if you want to come this way, they are other nicer hikes very close by.
