Standouts – Very nice views of Rancocas Creek, birding blinds.

Markings – None, but you really can’t get off of the trail.

Description: Not much to describe route-wise here, just a figure 8 of trails with short boardwalk walks to viewing areas for birds.  The trail is nice and level, no problem for me or the kid.  Lots of benches, beautiful viewing deck areas with built in binoculars.  The Fall colors were beautiful.

Overall recommendation:  A nice, easygoing stroll with some nice views.
