Hike or Bike!
Whether you’re walking solo, with your canine friend, or exploring the trails on your bike, the more than 5 miles of trails at Asbury Woods are the perfect place to get outside and get moving! Trail maps are located at the three major parking lots and trailheads: the Nature Center on the east side of Asbury Road, Asbury Park near the picnic pavilion on the west side of Asbury Road, and Browns Farm Barn on Sterrettania Road. Experienced hikers and newbies alike will enjoy the forest oasis set in the midst of suburban Millcreek Township. If you want to add some interactive activities to your visit to the trails, our self-guided activities page has some awesome ideas.
Adjacent to the Andrew J. Conner Nature Center is a wooden boardwalk that provides handicap accessible access for anyone with mobility issues. The third of a mile boardwalk offers glimpses into the forest, rest points along the way, and a wetland observation deck.
Important tips for visiting the trails:
- Leashed dogs are welcome on the trails and boardwalk but we ask you to leave your dogs at home for our public programs, events, and festivals.
- Bikes are allowed on the property between Asbury Park and Browns Farm; they are not permitted on the 50 acres on the east side of Asbury Road near the Nature Center.
- Restrooms are available in the Nature Center during public hours. A port-a-potty is available behind the Nature Center when the building is closed. Millcreek Township maintains a restroom at Asbury Park near the tennis courts.
If you’re a budding naturalist, these fun nature-themed apps can enhance your understanding of your surroundings and be a fun way to experience Asbury Woods in new ways, even if you’ve been here countless times.
