This preserve connects several land conservation areas and private land protected by conservation restrictions to create over 300 acres of contiguous open space. A network of paths meanders through the woods, along the marsh, and up to a lovely scenic vista that overlooks an active osprey nest. Some of these trails traverse private property; these trails are available through the generosity of private landowners who value land conservation and choose to share their land with you. Be respectful of the property owners and neighbors; please stay on the trails.
Directions: Follow Cranberry Highway/RT 28, turn onto Depot Street, continue over the railroad tracks and through the stop sign onto Great Neck Road, turn right on Stockton Short Cut, which is opposite Sacred Hearts Retreat Center. The parking area is on the left in less than 0.25 miles.
