Nice trail. Relatively flat with board walks over the wettest sections. Still muddy in sections despite no rain for a week. Needed to use the app to pick up the trail at Lake Nummy. Right on the road at swimmimg area, right on next road and left onto the trail before the recycling center. Spray tick repellant. The last half of the trail has high weeds on the trail. Picked off a lot of ticks along the way, including small deer ticks. Overall a nice hike.

I just finished this trail with my dog on July 4th.It would be a great running trail. Hiking was nice but make sure you use bug repellent with Deet..otherwise you will be covered with ticks and chiggers.
2 years ago I hiked only 3 miles of the trail.I was Chigger bait... I used a natural bug spray...They don't work...
I itched for 3 weeks...fair warning...
Spray yourself good to enjoy the trail . It's quite nice in some areas.

When I lived in jersey (Cape May, NJ) I would go here with my pup and absolutely loved it. It's great at any time of the year as long as you plan ahead and make sure you don't go there if it rained less than 3 days prior.

This is one of my favorite trails in South Jersey. The trail is easy, I would never think of this as moderate. Flat sandy trails the entire time. There are some areas that will flood after rain, but they have been actively working on this trail to improve those areas. One of our few loops that have decent mileage. When you come to the lake with the picnic area follow the road to the right and then right again when you meet the next road. The trail goes to the left near the dumpsters for the camping area. The last part of the loop is along 347 but has plenty of shoulder and grass to walk on, except for as you cross over the creek itself. There is another portion of this trail that crosses over 347 from the parking area. That portion of the trail is overgrown and quickly dead ends, not worth crossing a very busy road for.

Nice easy hike around a cedar lake. Trail is flooded in many areas after heavy rain.

Nice place for a long walk :) Pretty lake area with some different recreation options in season. Trails pretty much all flat and sandy, from what I've seen so far. Not much in the way of wildlife, either, but maybe that's different in the spring and summer.

Great Pines Barrens loop. The trail becomes hard to find at the 4ish mile mark by the campground near the lake. Very quiet with just a few people.

Not good weather for mountain bikes but too far to walk.

Fantastic place to bird! Birds can be found year round but it is best in May.
