Mountain Lakes Nature Preserve provides a quiet place to take a stroll. This hike is an easy one with some nice scenery along the way. The 75-acre park has about 8 miles of trails. Interestingly, this land was once part of the land the King of England gave William Penn, founder of Pennsylvania. The land is now owned by Princeton Township and remains preserved natural space. From the parking area, you’ll see a large sign with a map of the park. There are also restrooms at the parking area and a sign that says Mountain Lakes House. This hike passes by Mountain Lakes House, a wedding and event venue.
