The trail system features a 35-foot long bridge, steps and rails throughout the steeper parts that make the trails accessible to all levels of hikers, multiple benches and picnic tables, and a bird blind overlooking the river. This enclosure allows visitors a “bird’s eye view” of various waterfowl and eagles in their natural habitat without disturbing them. Visitors to the preserve can also take advantage of the visitor kiosk, stocked with interpretive information and large trail maps. All enhancements were made by staff and volunteers entirely with recycled materials. As one of New Jersey’s most visited preserves, the Maurice River Bluffs provides many opportunities for outdoor recreation, including five established trails. The nature preserve is also home to a floating dock and offers an unobstructed view of two bald eagle nests, as well as many benches and picnic tables which provide scenic spots for observation and relaxation.

I am generally very active and in good shape so I found this trail easy. There are varied elevations and scenic views of lake and marsh areas. I took a picture of a tiny turtle. He was so cute lol.

Love this place. Such a great place to get an awesome workout done. Was bored with walking around the neighborhood so I decided to take up hiking again after a 10+ yrs hiatus. A++++
