Hike Summary: The main paved trail is easy to find, I started out on this trail and then veered off onto some of the wooded trails. Once I got into woods I found there to be trails every where, typical for south Jersey parks. I bounced around on these walking through some swampy areas, followwed the river for a bit, then looped back on the main trail. There were a lot of people with dogs, riding bikes and pushing strollers. A nice park with potential for families of all ages to enjoy.
