Herrontown Woods Parking Lot Plowed!

Thanks to director Ben Stentz and the Princeton Recreation Department crews for plowing the Herrontown Woods parking lot! 

Traditionally, the parking lot had been left unplowed, but due to increased use by the public, and some advocacy by the Friends of Herrontown Woods, the town has responded. 

The road down to the parking lot is privately owned, so the lot and the drive may not get plowed at the same time.

Herrontown Woods--Where To Park After Snows

Please be aware that the Herrontown Woods parking lot has not traditionally been plowed. The Friends of Herrontown Woods is working with the town to change that in the future. The situation is complicated by the fact that the street leading down to the parking lot is a private drive. A number of people have headed down this deadend road, then gotten trapped when the snow proved deeper than it appeared.

As of yesterday, Autumn Hill Reservation parking lot remained unplowed as well.

For now, please park at Smoyer Park or drive to the back of Stone Hill Church,

and park near this shed. The trail leading into Herrontown Woods is just beyond it. 

Herrontown Woods has a special look in snow, if you're up for the trek.
