Very easy trail, and actually very nice, particularly when you reach the lake.

Wonderful loop around the area, well maintained trail with some great sights. Great in winter when some of the growth is pulled back and there aren’t all the mosquitos that love this area.

There are many intersecting trails, particularly along the Mullica River side of the loop. This is helpful because after a heavy rainy week, we found some sections to be impassable due to flooding. With a downloaded map, it was relatively simple to navigate routes around flooded sections. Important to check map at intersections of trails and interior roads in the forest. Leaabout 4.5 hours

Jerks on horses decided to curse us out for pointing out there isnt supposed to be horses on that trail... i guess ignorance is bliss... The trail was great, just disappointed at some of the people on it. One love.

trail was in perfect condition, sand wasn’t difficult to walk through, only saw 4 other people, def not a bike trail (several signs prohibiting biking actually), walking along side the river is incredible, managed in about 4 hours but was pushing it a bit, fascinating regeneration from a 3500 acre fire in 2017.

Great with dog until— the bridge- be prepared to carry your dog across! The trail is a quiet one, while you likely won’t see much wildlife you do pass through varying ecosystems. I hike with my 110 lb Labernese (Lab/Bernese Mtn dog) he loved it... until we got to the Quaker bridge crossing. The bridge is a square grated bridge. The grates are large enough for my big guys paws to go through. I got him across by scrambling down the side of the bridge and throwing a tennis ball across the river. He swam across, them I ran back up and across the bridge. The difficulty of this trail is the sand... in some parts it’s like sinking in beach sand... your calves will feel the burn

Mountain bikingGreat!

Pretty cool trail through the heart of the pine barrens. Flat the entire time pretty much which made it hard despite that seeming easy. However, overall it was a well-managed, fun trail. Would go back

HikingGreat!

The trail was pretty level the entire 13 miles, which was a nice break from last weekends rock scramble. The Pine Barrens were simply beautiful. Not that much wildlife but peaceful. Download the map before you start! Many of the trails have several options and lose any sight of trail blaze. We started on the trail that started at the picnic area. We eventually were on the white trail and then it would change to red. At about halfway it went to green and then yellow. Enjoy!!

Typical pine barrens trail - flat and flat. Lots of pine trees. Not much change in scenery. Lots of ticks. This was a nice loop. You do walk on sand in many parts in the pine barrens. You also hear and see dirt bikes. Not my favorite trail but I prefer elevation changes and rocks.

I loved this hiking trail! If you come in the morning go counterclockwise because a fire has cause some of the shade coverage to go on that side. There is more shade coming back if you go that way too. We saw some cute frogs on the way! You also get to walk through the village ! The hike is pretty flat wish some nice river views . The sad gets a little tiring to walk on though

Funny the people complaining about the lack of vistas in reviews: If you’re looking for hills, you won’t find them in South Jersey, people. (Silly Pennsies!) Loved the peacefulness of the Batona Trail, the sandy trail with pine needles, the fresh air. The Mullica River Trail is less varied. Both trails well marked.

Trail was very well marked. Did it counterclockwise starting at the Batsto parking lot. Many nice views of the Batsto and Mullica rivers. There is a section where the forest is recovering from a fire. Great to see it becoming green again.

Beautiful long hike. We went clockwise, starting on the yellow mullica river trail through the historic village, hiking through old growth forest for several miles before reaching some amazing campsites. Continuing on past the campsites for a few miles, take the green connector trail East for a mile to connect with the pink batona trail that leads back to the parking lot. Great for a long day home with no elevation and gorgeous scenery! The start of the trail was a bit confusing to find as the parking lot is the starting point for several different pathways including a mountain bike trail
