Horseshoe Bend Park - Flag Kirkland Three Bridge Hike

Come out to explore the gem of Hunterdon County that is Horseshoe Bend Park. This hike, designed for all ages, is a moderate walk through mature oak, maple and beech hardwood forests as well as cedar and pine softwoods. On your way, you will cross over three woodland bridges, have the potential to see numerous birds including a white red-tailed hawk, and begin to see the beauty of a much larger park.

Half way through the hike we will stop to discuss in-process land acquisitions that will expand the park area.
Remember to wear sturdy shoes, bring water and a love of the outdoors attitude.
