Greater Mountain Lakes Open Space Area

Often called Princeton’s “Central Park,” the Greater Mountain Lakes Open Space Area includes almost 300 acres of preserved, public open space and over 8 miles of walking trails. This network of trails connects the Mountain Lakes Preserve to Mountain Lakes North, John Witherspoon Woods, Community Park North, and the fields of Tusculum. The area features a series of lakes once used to harvest ice, a boulder field, a piney forest, and Devil’s Cave, as well as meadows and woods that once belonged to John Witherspoon.

Location: Parking is available off Mountain Avenue or Cherry Hill Road; both lots are marked by signs. Restrooms are available at the Mountain Avenue parking area.
