“A very nice spot to walk and bird watch”
Reviewed 5 December 2013

Our nephew, who sometimes goes to camp here, took us on a lovely hike through woods and along the lake. It was scenic, nice, and a great way to get some exercise in after Thanksgiving. Their Education Center was very well done, too. There are benches, access to the lake and lots of birds on the many hiking trails.

“Very nice quiet place for walking...”
Reviewed 21 September 2013 via mobile

Visiting Philly for a ball game and spent a night near Princeton. Such a nice afternoon that I looked on trip advisor for a place to walk. Arrived about 4:45pm, right before nature center closed at 5:00pm. Folks could not have been nicer! Advised us to talk Maggie's trail for a In and back two mile walk. Lovely! Thank you!!

“you can walk forever”
Reviewed 8 August 2013

Liked finding another local spot that is untouched and has great paths. Disliked that no dogs are allowed, but it is because it is part of Audubon and there are birds there.

“Relaxing hike”
Reviewed 25 July 2013

I love coming here for a relaxing hike and to take pictures. The visitor center has some neat stuff to look at and buy. If you like a nice hike and pretty scenery, visit the Plainsboro Preserve.

“A jungle in the middle of civilization”
Reviewed 21 May 2013

Plainsboro Preserve is a wonderful jungle experience in the midst of civilization. You take a small turn inside and enter a completely different world. The preserve is extremely well-maintained and informative boards have been placed at regular intervals informing the visitors about the flora and fauna present. There is also a small lake which runs along the course of the preserve. There are different trails depending on the time you wish to hike through. Lovely American beech trees welcomed us on the yellow trail with the sun peeping through them.

There are also lovely little benches where one can sit if one is tired or just to experience the serene atmosphere. The preserve is so silent that you can hear several birds. We spotted a rabbit and various types of birds which we couldn't identify :( The visitor centre was closed so I hope to visit the preserve again.
