Finally hiked this in the ice cold a week and a half ago (been waiting for the intersection of having a whole day free, decent weather, and my 4 year old having a restful enough week that he could do 6 miles... at least I got the first and third part), and it was amazing.

I'm sure there aren't many here who haven't done it, but I got some decent pictures, even if I left my stupid camera battery plugged into the wall at home and had to rely on my cell phone.




Old Central Railroad of NJ tracks.


Recent controlled burn.


Obligatory giant chair shot.


Beaver dam. This flooded out part of the Red Trail, you need to detour on the Green Trail.



Three Parker Preserve trails down, two to go!

Thanks for the post! I can't wait for it to warm up a little so I can get out there and hike this trail, it looks awesome! It looks especially good for snapping some pics on the SLR!
