Tranquility Preserve

Allamuchy Township, Warren County

135 acres

Open to the Public.


US 80 west to Exit 19 (Hackettstown/Andover); at the end of the exit ramp, cross over Route 517 to Route 667 north; drive about 0.25 of  a mile and turn left onto Route 612 at the Allamuchy General Store; drive 0.8 of a mile and make a right into an unmarked parking lot (at the end of a guard rail). 


Just a quick stop since it was raining hard.  I did not see any trails, but will have to come back to check out the area.
