Beautiful Pine Barrens trail through old cranberry bogs and blueberry fields. Follow the red trail from the Chatsworth entrance. One section is closed as it is underwater (probably from beaver activity - lots of dams and other signs) and you have to follow the green trail. Lots of wild and semi wild blueberries. Also a short tower which allows one to oversee the cranberry bogs, and in the middle of the woods two huge Adirondack chairs.

All I gotta say about this trail is that it's prolly one of the best in SJ. You're just walking and so many unexpected things pop up with dope guy views. Only bad view I saw was what seemed to be a stream we walked along with dooty splat everywhere. Highly recommended.

Nice little section of the Pine Barrens which was formerly cranberry bogs and blueberry fields. Many roads crossing the area as a result, but there is a beautiful red trail that takes you into the woods for a good part of the time. Lots of little surprises on the trail, like juicy blueberries, giant Adirondack chairs, beaver dams, and really nice little bodies of water,
