Hunting is permitted from September through February. Wearing blaze orange during hunting season is recommended Mondays-Saturdays. No hunting is permitted on Sundays, but precautions should still be taken.
This is a great trail system that can be accessed on Upper Creek Road, Route 29 and Worman Road, all in Stockton. The trailhead on Worman or behind the John Prall House offers the best car parking as street parking is ample in the town. Most of the trail is flat, but there are some difficult creek crossings and some hilly and rooty areas. If spending the better part of the day, a combined preserve and D&R Towpath ride makes for a very enjoyable bicycling experience. There are great places to grab a bite to eat at the Stockton Market or Stockton Deli and bicycle parking is available right in front of the Market.
This is not for the inexperienced rider as there are many creek crossings, large rocks and root and tree obstacles. There are some very flat short sections that are beginner friendly, but refer to njconservation.org for a trail map and information about the different sections of the trail.
