Overview

7 miles of trails. The central spine of the trail network runs from the parking area on Hopewell-Princeton Road (Carter Road) to the Charles Evans Overlook near Aunt Molly Road.  The St. Michaels Farm Preserve is a pioneering example of how to accommodate farming and public recreation in the same area. About 200 acres of the preserve are actively farmed under lease from D&R Greenway Land Trust, and the remaining 195 acres are forested. Many trails follow old farm roads or mowed routes along field edges, but east of Aunt Molly Road and in the southern portion of the property, woodland hiking paths have been created. Walks on the preserve offer bucolic open vistas, and from the overlook near Aunt Molly Road a broad view of the preserve, the spires of Hopewell, and the Sourland Ridge to the north can be seen.
