Section 8 – Mercer Meadows County Park – Pole Farm Section


Description: The entire 1,000+ acre park, formerly known as Mercer County Park Northwest has a new look. The LHT segments are nearly complete and construction is underway to add amenities throughout the park.  The already spectacular destination encompasses Rosedale Park, Curlis Lake and the Equestrian Center with the LHT passing through all the sections.   The LHT connects many sections of the new park but there will also be other trails and specific areas highlighting the park’s historic telecommunications, industrial and agricultural uses as well as its many spectacular natural areas. This section runs from  Keefe Road to Blackwell Road in Lawrence Township, NJ.
