Nicely maintained state park. Wide, well maintained trails within a short distance of the parking area skirt the cranberry bogs and historic buildings. Many other trails traverse the park to its Southern border at Lacey Road.

I started from the parking lot trailhead like most folks do. As you cross the old cranberry bog, most will turn back, which is a shame because by continuing on is when the real fun starts.

Continue going straight along the backside of the big and you'll shortly come to a steel gate/barrier that you can simply walk around. I believe at this point you have left the park but are still on state land. This is a nicely forested trail that continues on for about a mile.

The terrain changes here and becomes treeless and sandy. More like the typical Pine Barrens. It also has a very desolate feel to it. There's some water here that is amazing in color. This section follows some power lines towards Lacey Rd which is a couple of miles away.

You'll eventually see a wide trail that cuts back into the forest. Follow this back towards the parking lot. On the way you'll see the Cedar Creek kayak/canoe launch point, and pass through the remains of an old village that is now part of the park.

Perfect starter hike for young explorers! Not too long, not too short. Plenty of things to see and learn.
Mostly flat, well maintained trails
