Thompson Preserve

Thompson Preserve, Hopewell Township (6/4/2016)

This is the first of two areas we visited today in Central New Jersey. Using this map, we parked in the grassy lot between the kiosk and the red-roofed brick building on Pennington-Hopewell Road. We hiked every trail in the preserve, following a clockwise direction. There used to be a bridge out where the map indicates "gully" but it's been replaced. There are a couple of nice views of Stony Brook and a nice passage through an organic farm field which passes very close to a private farm.

Total distance hiked was 1.7 miles in about an hour.
