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.

This is a nice place for a nature walk. Cattus Island Park is a mix of some young, thinly populated forest and wetlands.

While there is virtually no elevation gain, there are some nice views. Trails are well marked and there are quite a few different plant species if you're interested in learning to identify edible, medicinal or poisonous species in the field.

If you're looking for a short walk, you could do worse than with CIP.

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.
