Black River Wildlife Management Area

40.80164, -74.69671

The Patriots’ Path [white] follows four miles of the abandoned Chester Branch of the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western Railroad, which closely parallels the Black River though the wildlife management area.

This 3,000-acre WMA encompasses river bottom, swampy woodland, freshwater marsh, fields and upland deciduous woods.  Woods roads cross the mixed hardwood forest with a heavy understory and an occasional pine plantation.  Some of the fields are filled with wildflowers and grasses, while others are still cultivated.  The area is well known for birding.
