Lewis Morris Loop

Lewis Morris Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"You won’t require a bicycle to get the most out of this hilly hike, just a decent pair of walking shoes and a couple of hours’ time. Part of the fun comes from trails that are hardly ever level yet seldom reach the steepness of more-rugged climbs, making this ideal for family outings.

Several streams add to the natural flavor of the setting, and the healthy mix of hardwoods may make you feel like you’re farther out in the sticks than you actually are."

Turkey Swamp is a beautiful piece of nature, smack dab in the middle of the most crowded state in the country. While the park can be crowded on summer holidays, if you arrive on a Saturday, early, expect a peaceful experience.

For the beginner or a family with young children, the green trail is an excellent place to start. End to end, it is roughly 40-45 minutes, depending on how many times you stop to admire the scenery. The walk is mostly flat, with just enough small hills to make it interesting. Expect some wet areas and a few place where you may need to assist the very young.

The rest of the park is packed full of trails ranging from very easy to moderately challenging. Other activities include overnight camping, fishing, and cabin rental for groups.
