Terrain –woods and meadows
Trailheads – 39°44’20.82″N, 74°59’34.57″W
Directions – Chews Landing Road, Sicklerville, NJ
Standouts – Nice forest walk.
Description – This is a very new park, and is a bit tough to find at first. It’s hidden on Chews Landing Road, next to Donio Memorial Park, which itself is right behind the Shop Rite on Cross Keys Road.
Getting to the trailhead is that hard part. You’ll need to park at Donio by the football field. Follow the driveway back up toward Chews Landing Road. At Chews Landing Road, you’ll see the paved trail entrance directly across the street from the Donio Park sign.
You’ll come within sight of the water tower, which is where the trail turns around and heads back through the meadow.
The meadow is a nice little spot, with some fenced in area to the left on the way back. At this point, I first really noticed the storm cloud blowing in, and the distant rolling of thunder. So I hustled this last stretch, crossed Chews Landing Road, and got into the car approximately five seconds before the rain hit.
Overall recommendation – With the 1 mile hike that is located at Donio Park, it’s a good fitness walk combined together, but not worth coming any distance for. I missed walking around Donio Park because of the rain, but I’ll be back.
