Overview

Many runners (including this one!) love this place because of the sense of openness which is rare here in NJ.

Runner Notes

Nothing challenging.

Description

This run is mostly in open fields. There are several trails in the park to make up longer or shorter routes, which is part of what makes this area so lovely - you can customize your route depending on how you feel that day! While many of the trails remain flat and lead through the grasslands, some portions of trail enter woods.

This loop makes for a moderate outing, and is perfect for a shorter picnic run, or as part of an after-work outing.
