The Watershed Reserve offers more than 10 miles of hiking trails that are open from dawn to dusk throughout the year including a half mile accessible boardwalk that is currently under construction, a segment of the Lawrence-Hopewell Trail (LHT) and a 2,000 foot LHT-link trail made of porous asphalt that connects to our main driveway.
Our trails explore wetlands, forests, meadows, streams, an organic farm, and the four-acre Wargo Pond, which support the Watershed Reserve’s vibrant and diverse community of animals and plants. Some of the oldest trees in central New Jersey are found here, as well as fox, coyote, weasel and flying squirrel. Birders will enjoy looking out for osprey, bobolink, Coopers hawk, red-shouldered hawk, or any of six species of owl that frequent the reserve.
The Watershed Center and trails will be closed on June 20 for the Solstice Run!
