As a nature trip, this is probably a really awesome place to visit in the spring/summer/fall. Easy walk around loop. Looking forward to planned expansions. Given its setting, it was a welcome nature break from the surrounding industrial refineries and Interstate 1-9.

Hawk Rise Sanctuary is a wildlife refuge converted from an old closed landfill. There is a kiosk at the trailhead detailing the current trail as well as planned expansions. There are also geocaches sprinkled throughout. Most of the trail is boardwalk with gravel paths in between. The southern path follows along the side of an old landfill mound, leading to a small enclosed dock/platform that has a nice view of the Rahway River, overlooking Carteret. During our walk we spotted several different birds as well as a small deer.

Nice loop with forest feel.

A small loop with a lot of beautiful birds to see. Most of the walk is a boardwalk with some gravel trails in between. The area also have some geocaching spread out for entertainment
