Marker Description: The Wickecheoke Trail is a great place for a hike in a beautiful, rural New Jersey setting. The trail follows the Wickecheoke Creek through dense forest and along scenic meadows. Loop hikes of varying distances are possible by combining sections of the trail with the areas quiet rural roads. Walking is fairly easy as most sections of the trail are relatively flat, although some sections of the trail require walking over uneven ground. Creek crossings are indicated on the trail maps; they can be difficult even when the water is low, but can be dangerous when the water is high.

Draining the rolling hills of southwestern Hunterdon County, the Wickecheoke Creek winds its way through bucolic farm fields and spills over rocky ledges on its way to the Delaware River. Since the 1980s, New Jersey Conservation Foundation has been preserving lands along this pristine creek from the wet forests of the Croton Plataeu to Stockton Borough. To date New Jersey Conservation Foundation has helped to preserve more than 4,000 acres of open space and farmland in the Wickecheoke Creek Greenway.
