Description

This trail follows a bright pink trail blaze. It is easy to spot throughout the run. At some points you'll have to pass roadways, it is not difficult to stay on trail, however. During the run you'll see many interesting areas. At one point you'll arrive at Carranza Memorial which is an interesting memorial for a Mexican pilot. You'll also reach Apple Pie Hill. Here you can climb the Apple Pie Hill Forestry Lookout Tower which is about 205 ft above sea level, from up here you can have an amazing view of Atlantic City to the East and Philadelphia to the West.

There are picnic areas, camping sites, parking, and dedicated swimming areas throughout the path. As well as this, there are stops for restrooms and water sources along the way.

The trail is a lot of fun and not too far from the main road of rt. 206 and rt. 70, if you are a beginner runner and looking for a fun trail, this is definitely a good choice!

Flora & Fauna

Deer and other small animals may be seen on trail. Birds are also very common during this hike. Wildlife flora such as wild blueberries, pitcher plants and pine trees are common to see.
