Description –
Back in July, The Pres, Tree Rider, and I were working on our 30 Days – 30 Trails – 30 Miles challenge.  We decided to check this park out.  While we did two miles on the trails, we realized too late that “the good stuff” (New Brooklyn Lake and the Great Egg Harbor River) was at the other end of the park.  We mostly wandered past the picnic pavilion, the closed playground, the open playground (where we hung out for a while), and the frisbee golf course.

I came back in October and checked out the other side of the park, which features the Great Egg Harbor River and some nice lakes.  The trail follows from where we stopped off all the way down the road to the intersection with Cedarbrook Road, which is a bit over a mile in a straight line.  I walked a bit through some more of the frisbee golf course, then checked out the river, which isn’t far from it’s source at Berlin Park.

I might come back here and canoe a bit, not sure how far you can make it in either direction from the dock, but it would be fun to find out!

Nearby – Winslow Wildlife Management Area is next door, which contains the Blue Hole Trail



The Good

Some pretty views.

The Could Be Better

Basically a walk past a playground and through a frisbee golf course.

Bottom Line

Not worth traveling for, unless you like frisbee golf, but a nice little hike if you're here already.
