Maurice River Bluffs Preserve – Millville, NJ

Welcome to the Maurice River Bluffs!  Taken from the floating dock.

Blue, Orange, Red, and White Trails – Maurice River Bluffs Preserve – Millville, Cumberland County, NJ Distance: 5 miles.  The map is a little confusing.  We did 3.7 miles, skipping only some short bits of the orange trail and part of the non-alternate Blue Trail (which was closed).  5 miles is a best guess. Type: Web of trails (many of them are loops, the orange trail loops back on itself several times) Difficulty: 7 of 10 – your legs will feel these hills the next day!.

Terrain – woodlands, riverbanks, lots and lots of hills.
