Carson Road Woods

LHT Rosedale Lake by Sarah Gilbert


The Carson Road Woods segment of the LHT begins on the south side of Rosedale Road at Mya Drive. After crossing Rosedale Road from the ETS segment (segment 4) the trail follows Mya Drive for 0.15 miles before turning right (west) on Benedek Road. Benedek Road turns into Belleview Terrace as it rounds a corner. The LHT leaves the paved residential street and turns south across cobblestone pavers into Carson Road Woods. The trail winds through scenic forest and farmland for 0.95 miles to Carson Road.

Carson Road Woods is Lawrence Township’s largest municipal parkland dedicated to passive recreation. At 183 acres, the area supports a large variety of plant and animal life, including many native NJ plant species.

The Carson Road Woods segment is preserved open space owned by Lawrence Township. The area is co-managed by the Friends of Carson Road Woods.
