This is a small county park located in Old Bridge, NJ with a very nice trail system tucked away behind a ball field.
There are several well marked loops, with mileage marked on the park map. We managed to put a 5.1 mile loop together, and it would be easy to do less if you like.
Trail surface is very easy: level and soft pine needles, with boardwalks to cross brooks and wet areas. The trail became a little less traveled and more remote after crossing Pleasant Valley Road, with some wet areas to hop w/o boardwalks.
It's not worth driving from far away to, but if you are in the area it's a nice close-by park to get an easy hike in. We often go to Cheesequake for quick hikes, and now we have another option.
