- Where is Buttermilk Falls?
There are no direct trails to Buttermilk Falls, as the falls are located on private property. However, you can access the trails by taking the Greenway Trail to the Fern Loop and entering Walnut Creek. You must wade a bit in the shallow creek to access Buttermilk Falls from the water.
- Can we picnic at Asbury Woods?
Picnicking is welcomed at Asbury Woods, but we ask that you respect our need to use some of these spaces for educational programming. There are picnic tables located behind the Nature Center, adjacent to the picnic shelter, benches in the Celebration Garden, a gazebo and teaching deck along the boardwalk, and other open grassy spaces on the property.
The picnic shelter is often used for summer camps and programming, but can be used for a small picnic lunch when not in use by Asbury Woods. Large picnic groups must inquire about renting the space.
