Back in early 2021 (whoops, behind on posts), I went to check out the Susan Stevens Halbe Preserve,  which is part of the Save the Environment of Mooretown series of parks and trails in that  Burlington County town.

The beginning is easy enough, step over the chain blocking vehicle access and walk up the dirt road.  Check.

The trail follows the pathway of stream.  I followed the road as it curved to cross a dam over the stream creating a nice little lake.






After crossing the dam, a faint travel worked its way around the edge of the lake, so I bravely set off down it.

Found a balloon!
Can see houses without the leaves on the trees.


 

As far as I made it.

Unfortunately, the trail faded away to nothing.  I poked around a bit trying to find it, but no luck.  With the trail gone, I opted to turn around and head back the way I came rather than invent a trail through the woods any more than I already had been.


A fun little adventure and a pretty little lake!

Nearby:

STEM has LOTS of nice trails less than five minutes away, including Boundary Creek, Little Woods on the Rancocas (just across the street from this one), and Farrago Farm.

As always, you can check out hundreds of trails in South Jersey, organized by county and town, by going to our Hiking page.
