This is a great short hike on easy terrain. If you're in the area, come out and enjoy this park. You can make the trip as log as you want. You can even enjoy some geocaching.

Defiantly a place anyone would love. Walk the wooden deck to see views of the wetlands and osprey nests. Get a nice view of the barneget bay and Ortley Beach and Lavalette. Also try to bring some bug spray. But its different from everything else. It also features a playground for kids. Really interesting. Will be going there again.

Several areas you are attacked by bugs and feel like your eaten alive. But overall trails nice and semi well marked.

This is a beautiful area to hike. It's nice to see what the area used to look like before the area was over populated. It's an easy walk with minimal elevation changes. There's a nice variety of trails that go from out along the edge of the bay and back into the woods. The wildlife and birds are great. Definitely watch for ticks, but luckily the trails are wide enough so you aren't into brush. I've been out here several times over the years, always beautiful.

I started on a nice casual walk and then I was attacked by green heads....wound up running the whole damn trail just to survive.....absolutely horrible
