1.1 miles, easy. From the parking area off Gulick Road, walkers climb a pretty dirt lane across open fields with good views. The lane turns sharp right, and the trail leaves the lane and follows a mowed corridor down across a meadow. It enters the woods for a loop of about 1.1 miles. At the lowest point of the loop, a spur trail makes it possible to stop and rest on an old dam and look for herons wading in a shallow pond, and walk along Alexauken Creek below the dam. This combination of trails pass through lands still privately owned by photographer Pryde Brown, and part of the Alexauken Creek Wildlife Management Area of the New Jersey Division of Fish and Wildlife. A side trail that departs from the entry lane crosses north-facing fields along a hedgerow and rejoins the main trail loop near its western limit, offering an alternative route for the completion of a loop.
