Opossum Road Woods

Opossum Road Woods (12/11/2016)

This was the first of two areas we visited today in central New Jersey.

Using this map, we parked in lot of the Rock Brook School and headed south to an opening in the trees behind the school. This path is not used very much because we immediately found ourselves bushwhacking, before finally arriving at Opossum Road, just north of the bridge over Beden Brook. We walked south over the bridge and found the trailhead of the trail, now well-worn. We took that until we couldn't go any further, to an area of private property with plenty of signs indicating such. At that point we turned around and retraced out steps, taking the southern path of the small loop, which you can see on the map.

Total distance hiked was about 1 mile in under 40 minutes.
