Description: This is a nice, simple walk through some fairly young forest. No great views, not much of a chance for animals, no challanging climbs, you won’t even escape road noise, but a pleasant way to spend thirty minutes.
We made a big loop of the blue, brown, yellow, and red trails, but there is plenty of room to poke around the woods.
Overall recommendation: Not worth driving out of your way for, but a nice little walk if you’re close.
BONUS: This trail connects to the Croft Farm Trails (just cross Brace Road), which has further connections to the Hopkins Pond Trail and the Watchable Wildlife Trail, with a connecting trail all the way out to Cooper River Park in Pennsauken. With all the connections, you could easily turn this into a hike of a dozen miles.
