Park Description:

In 1974 the children of Hans and Catherine Huber, a manufacturer of pigments used in dry inks, donated 118 acres of woodlands to the Monmouth County Park System. The park has been enlarged by subsequent donations, including the Huber family home, built in 1927, which has been transformed into an environmental center.

Trails Overview:

Although the eight miles of multiple-use trails are open to hikers, bicyclists, equestrians, and cross-county skiers [in season], bicyclists generally prefer the nearby Hartshorne Woods Park.  The trails lead through stands of tulip trees, oak-hickory forest, and meadows and can be combined to form loop hikes of varying lengths.  The Nature Loop trail, Discovery Path and Fox Hollow trail begin at the environmental center.  A trail map is available on the park's web site [Contact Information].  To find a detailed description of a specific hike click here and scroll down the "Parks" column to Huber Woods Park. The park also offers an equestrian program which includes people with physical and mental disabilities.
