Cushetunk Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Cushetunk Mountain Preserve is part of a mountain that was formed by volcanoes millions of years ago. The Lenni Lenape American Indians called the land cushetunk, which means “place of hogs.” There are no hogs around today, but there are tons of boulders for those looking for a more challenging hiking experience.

There are plenty of roots and rocks in the trail, so watch your footing. At the top of the hill, follow the White Trail as it breaks off to the left. Off to the right you can see Round Valley Reservoir through the trees. This hike has an incredible number of ticks, so be sure to do a tick check after your hike."
