A very easy, scenic, and enjoyable trail. The terrain changes from dirt to sand as you work your way closer to the Delaware River shoreline and if you continue on past that you can cross a bridge and work your way across several small boardwalks. The PCNT has an abundance of wildlife from birds and wild turkeys to ground hogs and deer. There is always something to see.

Awesome spot, has multiple trails. An array of wildlife can be found here and there is a nature center you can go in and learn about the trail. Also very safe I have seen police patrolling the trail routinely. Also you can pick up maps under the pavillion near the parking before starting the trails.

A bit hard to navigate. You wander through looping, poorly-marked trails through some scrubby woods.
Be sure to go along the river. You can see the bridge and a bunch of strange industrial stuff. Lots of animal tracks in the mud. Take the Cove Trail out along the water. It’s a narrow way that takes you out along the swamp. Really great spot to see tons of birds. You will frequently see deer — plus a menacing flock of wild turkeys if often looming somewhere in the woods.
