Easy trail with not a lot of other people around most of the time. Does get wet and muddy in spots after a rain.

Hiked the Manasquan Trail. I only saw 2 other people during my walk, and they were park employees. Nicely maintained trail through the wooded areas on the North side of the property.

Parked at Oak Point area and headed down to the boat house. Wanted to start the Alder Trail but had a bit of an issue no markings until a couple came by and pointed me in the right direction. The trail goes across 2 fields and a parking lot (I believe). Very nice trail with boardwalks and great views of the lake. At the end I took the Metedeconk Trail, very nice relaxing trail with some length. This park has a lot of bathrooms and rest areas, very great. Really nice park for lots of outdoor activities.

Love Turkey Swamp Park - go there often and always something new to see each time. Unfortunately today the Adler Trail was flooded out due to the recent rain we received.

What a great little gem! The trail around the water is nicely maintained and has some great views and many benches to rest at. There are jungle gyms for kids to play on. You can ride horses on trails and through pastures. Lots of picnic tables are available to have lunch at. There is a small beach where you can launch a kayak or canoe!

Completed the trail around the lake (Alder Trail) by accessing the park from the Matedeconk Trailhead (I recommend this mile long access trail through the lush, swamp section). It also allows for very early access to the park so you have the lake to yourself!

Very easy trail system. the park is obviously heavily used during the day with boat rentals, a boat house, playgrounds and picnic areas, etc. Go early and beat everyone to the lake... you will thank yourself for the serenity of the lake.

This is more of a family outing location, but the side trails are nice hikes. You can find solitude along the back side of the lake, as most people will stay along the more developed areas. I uploaded pics, so take a look and enjoy!

Fun but not the best trail

thought there would be a good bike trail but seems more hiking on north side to swamp marsh, got really muddy and we turned back but hopefully the south side is much better?I'd recommend hiking, camping, kyak/fishing instead.

Thanks Mike

Very easy trail, I stayed on the main "driving" path because it was raining today but it was still very nice and beautifully maintained.

We took the Alder (green) trail which was a loop around the shelter, passing the boat house and skirting the lake. We had our dog with us, and as this was his first trip out with us, the timing was inaccurate since he had to stop and sniff every nook and cranny. It was a great day and more of an easy walk than a hike. Definitely recommend it and we will be going again. I have been to Turkey Swamp park for many years paddle boating and picnicking with my class, but this was the first time I used the trails.
