Welcome to the Maurice River Bluffs! Taken from the floating dock.
Blue, Orange, Red, and White Trails – Maurice River Bluffs Preserve – Millville, Cumberland County, NJ

Difficulty: 7 of 10 – your legs will feel these hills the next day!
Total score: 10 of 10.
Terrain – woodlands, riverbanks, lots and lots of hills.
