A brook, a pond, a view of NYC, forest & fields in this hike on Chester Township parkland. The trail uses the former Bell Labs "telephone pole farm" and takes you through a restored grassland Wildlife Habitat Improvement Project where birders will find an incredible variety of species.

Simple, quiet, hilly set of trails surrounded by nice country/suburban neighborhoods. We hiked this on January 1. Even though the area is relatively small, it's peaceful aside from signs of hunters.
