Union Township, Hunterdon County
Accepted as a donation to the Trust in 1995, this property provides
watershed protection to one headwater section of the Mulhockaway
Creek. The forested site was once farmland and a few old apple
and fruit trees from the farm's orchard can still be found. The
stream flow can sometimes dry up in summer months, however, wildlife
still find the area provides needed food and cover.
Public Access and Uses:
It is recommended that the public use parking facilities at the
adjoining NJ Division of Fish and Wildlife’s Clinton Wildlife
Management Area located on Van Syckles Road. Since the New Jersey
Division of Fish and Wildlife has a strong enforcement presence
at the adjoining wildlife management area, the Trust allows deer
hunting at this preserve without the need for registration.
