Trips leave from the entrance of the woods at 2150 Amwell Road (Route 514) about 3/4 mile east of East Millstone, New Jersey. The trail through the woods may be muddy in places except in dry weather, so persons should come prepared. The trip through the woods takes between an hour and two hours. There is no charge, and reservations are not required on these guided public tours.*
*Groups of more than ten persons may not attend the guided tours. Such groups are invited to write or email the Director, Department of Ecology, Evolution and Natural Resources, Rutgers University, 14 College Farm Road, New Brunswick, NJ 08901, firstname.lastname@example.org, for special guided tours to be arranged at other times. For private tours, please contact the director to make arrangements well in advance of the desired date.
