We hadn't been to Monmouth Battlefield State Park
in ages, and we were not enthralled with the lack of trail markers the last time we were there - but we thought the level trails and open fields may be a good choice for snowshoe.
It was, and apparently a lot of people thought so too, as we saw lots of snowshoe and cross-country ski tracks. In fact, the snow was so deep that without one of those, I think you'd get tired out pretty fast just trying to hike the trails.
We stayed in the south trails area, taking the main trailhead (go behind the visitor center, it is to your left down the hill if you are facing the field). We turned off onto the yellow trail, where the snow was unbroken most of the way and followed that back to the fields, where we just wandered around. Lots of tracks here too, plus large areas of unbroken snow glistening in the sun.
