So after 50-some days hanging out in the house, the kids and I started going out again on weekday mornings. Our adventure this day? Swedes Run Fields in Moorestown! I’d wanted to take a picture of this barn forever, and not there’s a trail next to it too, so perfect.
This was likely built in the early 1800s and may have originally been a house or part of a house.
We took the trail from the parking lot that ran back behind the barn.
We then went back to where the trail went. This part of the trail loops around a piece of land that is rented out to a farmer. It starts as crushed stone, which turns into tire tracks toward the back of the first side of the field.
From here, we could have gone left, recrossed the road, and taken a short walk around to that four way intersection behind the barn. But it was the rocket launch that day and we had about three minutes, so we rushed down the sidewalk back to the car to watch. History.
Nearby: Moorestown has so many great trails to check out.
Boundary Creek is great.
Little Woods on the Rancocas is great.
Lovely flowers, nice creek, and, of course, the barn.
I mean, we saw a muskrat, how could I give this any negatives?
