|Park Description:|| |
The Tenafly Nature Center, founded in 1961, manages a 52-acre parcel of land as well as the adjacent 330-acre Lost Brook Preserve. The preserve includes second-growth woodland and wetlands, with the attractive three-acre Pfister's Pond in the northwest corner near the visitor center.
|Trails Overview:|| |
There are ten blazed trails totaling about seven miles. Near the southern boundary of the nature center property, a huge glacial erratic may be seen east of the trail. This is Haring Rock, after which the trail is named [orange blaze]. Other landmarks are pointed out on the trail map, accessible on the park's web site [see Contact Information].
From US 9W in Tenafly, proceed west on East Clinton Avenue. In 1.7 miles, turn right at the traffic light onto Engle Street, then turn right at the next "T" intersection and follow Hudson Avenue uphill to its end at the nature center. [Google Maps: "313 Hudson Ave., Tenafly, NJ 07670" Satellite view will show park outline.]
