Overview

2.03 miles, Easy.  This property consists of a combination of open fields and woodlands at the edge of the Sourland Mountains. The trail runs parallel to the Stony Brook and begins in a native meadow, defined by hedgerows.  In the spring, vernal pools support tadpoles.  The trail continues into the forest and loops around back to the meadow.  Along the way you’ll find groves of red cedars, a remnant patch of old growth forest with one of the largest White Oaks around, and a maze of early 19th century stone walls.

Driving - From Route 518, turn onto Van Dyke Road (at the blinking traffic light).  The trailhead and parking lot will be on your left at the bottom of the hill, just beyond the stream crossing.
