Plainsboro Preserve hike, then optional Lunch at pizza joint

If you plan to go for pizza afterwards then please only bring cash $, as per our Policy page, to avoid complicated splitting of transactions onto numerous cards.

Some of us have hiked here before.  It's mostly flat with trails in woods, meadow, and near a lake.  Weather permitting, we will do about 2+ hr of walking. If it's cold or windy, we can shorten the walk.  We will also visit their small Environmental Education Center (a few critters in tanks, cages, aquariums), Gift Shop, and restrooms.

Arrive at 10:45am to group up in parking lot.  We will begin hiking at 11:00am. Dress for Autumn weather and lake breezes.  I recommend wearing waterproof hiking shoes or old shoes you don't care about, because some trail sections can be sloppy.

Check out the Plainsboro Preserve website:

And here is a trail map:

Those with children can bring them if they are good around people and can walk a few miles on their own. Pets NOT allowed at Plainsboro Preserve.

    Big group. We should carpool so we don't have 30 cars pull into the parking lot. Haha. I will be coming from North Brunswick if anyone wants to meet in North Brunswick to carpool post a message here. Other people post messages for their towns if they want to setup a carpool.
