Celery Farm Loop

Allendale
Bergen Co.
New Jersey

Total Time: 0:30 hour
Estimated Distance: 1.2 Miles

Pros: Lots of birds and wildlife
Cons: More urban setting

The Celery Farm is a freshwater wetlands preservein suburban Allendale, New Jersey. It has a large amount of birds and another animate species. I had gone to a tradeshow in nearby Midland Park, so did not have the time for a larger hike. It was also raining, which limited my hike options. The rain was light and the weather warm, so I had a light jacket which kept me dry. I parked at the trailhead on Franklin Turnpike, and the the trail looping around the loop, going north at the west side of the lake, and then looping around.
