This is a beautiful forest with upland and wetland trails. Trail system was once 5 star but now is in poor shape due to vehicle damage creating large areas of flooding where the trails should be. Parts are so wet they are impassible. The three cranberry bogs are separated by 3 dikes that have breaches making it difficult or impossible to get across without walking in the water. The township environmental commission is working with township officials to install gates to stop illegal entry of vehicles and dumping. Signs will be placed along property lines. A plan to fix the trail system is part of the project being spearheaded by the environmental commission. Over the next couple of years this area will be a 5 star trail system again. The future of this park is going to include guided nature hikes, bird watching tours and other public events.
