Blackwater Pond Park – Buena, NJ

Blackwater Pond Park – Buena Borough, Atlantic County, NJ Distance – Maybe 3 miles of trails, nearly all of which require backtracking. (we did 2 1/2 miles, and missed 1 1/2 miles of paved path) Type – Web of out-and-backs Difficulty:  3 of 10 – parts of trail a bit overgrown (Tree Rider tripped a lot).  One section had a ton of blowdowns, but others showed alot of evidence of chainsaws clearing the way.  No markers, so not 100% sure what was trail vs just a deer path

Website – Buena Parks & Rec Open – Sunrise to Sunset.

Terrain – Fields, woods, and swamp Surface – Partially paved, partially dirt

Trailheads –  [...]
