We tried this loop in early February but the slushy snow caused us to cut things short. This time the snow was all gone, and we were able to hike the entire park. There is a nice mix of pine trees and deciduous forest, the Manasquan river, and a lake and swamp area.
8.1 miles. Trail surface is easy and level; this hike is moderate only due to length. Lots of opportunities for short hikes in this park.
The trails are mostly really well marked... mostly. There were a few instances at intersections where markings just were not there, and while we were almost certain of the way to go... it required walking blind for a bit.
