Plainsboro Preserve

80 Scotts Corner Road, Cranbury, New Jersey 08512, Middlesex County,


Imagine over 1,000 acres of open space preserved in the heart of New Jersey's sprawl center, the Route 1 corridor. A partnership was formed between Middlesex County, Plainsboro Township and the New Jersey Audubon Society to preserve and provide accessibility to one of the region's most significant ecological legacies.

Enjoy over five miles of trails meandering through mature beech woods, wet meadows, and the shoreline of scenic 50-acre McCormack Lake. Walk the floodplain of Devil's Brook in search of the more than 150 species of birds that call the preserve home during the year. Plants on site consist of a diverse showing of spring wildflowers and also include over ten species of rare or endangered plant species found sparingly elsewhere in the state including the majestic southern Twayblade orchid. In addition to the trails, we are running programs on some weekends.
