This path was around 0.3 miles. Not much to see here besides some berry bushes, weeds, and wildflowers. Someone attempted to do some plantings. A few more gardens along the trail would be nice.

Next to road so there is a lot of noise from cars and trucks.

A lovely short trail in the heart of Chatham, NJ. A "figure eight" loop, easily accessed by a parking lot along Hillside Avenue. Native flower plantings, benches and a picnic table with pretty views over the far mountain ridge. Wildlife including fox, deer, ground hog, birds (especially woodpeckers) and many species of butterflies, bees and other insects. The land was formerly part of the Averett Farm, purchased by Chatham Township with support from Morris County and the State of New Jersey.
