WARREN, NJ - Want to learn more about the trails around the area. Then come to the 3rd installment of Get to Know Your Trails Hiking Series on Saturday, October 3 from 9-11am. There will be two choices of hikes to take. One is led by Naturalist & Recreation Commissioner Joe Filo who will lead a slower paced walk & talk hike about nature along the trails. And the other is led by Recreation Director & avid hiker, Eleanora Hermann who will lead a more brisk hike.

This hike is for adults, kids and families seeking an interest in improved health and enjoying a walk along Dealaman Pond and Stransky trails.  Learn about the growing bird watching activity. Enjoy woods, plants, flowers, ponds, frogs, and turtles plus more.  This is the third in a series of hikes Warren Township Recreation Commission are introducing to residents.

Dealaman Pond is a 25 acre woodlot, wetland and pond/picnic area. It is named for George Dealaman, a long time Warren Public Servant and benefactor. It has been enhanced with a parking lot, wood-chipped trail loops, benches, and a restored dam holding a large shallow pond use for the township fishing derby each May. A half-mile trail loop winds through a young hardwood grove to older groves along Cory’s brook, marsh and pond; a small open field surrounds the dam location.

Stransky Farm is a 21 Acre farm and woodlot purchased in 1998 from the Stransky family. Behind this, the mowed trails loop around the large meadows in both open and shaded areas, connecting with blazed wooded trails along Cory’s Brook. A wide variety of wildflowers, shrub and trees, aged and young line the level, generally smooth trails.  A few large old farm equipment items add historical interest.  A variety of species and settings, plus convenience and ease of walking, combines to make a popular outdoor retreat. 

This is a free event, just show up and sign waiver when you arrive.  Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult. 

For more information feel free to contact the Warren Twp Recreation Department at recreation@warrennj.org or call 908-753-8000 x 270
