Historic Smithville Park Trails – Eastampton, NJ

Did a massive overhaul on my post on Historic Smithville Park in Burlington County, including adding in the Ravine Trail that I hiked for the first time last week. This old factory town has a fascinating history, 4.1 miles of beautiful hiking trails, a floating trail across the lake, picturesque factory ruins, and nice views of Rancocas Creek – what more could you want in a trail system?
