Beautiful place for an hour or so walk.
May 2021
The Bridge preserve is 300 acres itself but is surrounded by many more acres of woods. The terrain is hilly, trails are well maintained, but a bit rocky with tree roots in some places. The main loop is about 2.55 miles, with an additional offshoot (approx. .5 mile) down to a small secluded pond. Parking is good, but in the winter, when it snows, the lot isn't plowed. A pavilion at the highest point has picnic tables, and there is an outhouse near by. The view is lovely.

Nice, easy walking trail
Jun 2018 • Couples
This is a newer walking/light hiking trail in the area. It is a great trail for beginners or families with younger children. Dogs on leashes are permitted, providing you clean up after them. Every time we’ve been there, there are even dog waste bags provided at the entrance to the trail in case you forget yours. There is a small picnic area at the top with a small field for kids to run around in.
Very nice easy trail.

Nice hike
Jun 2016 • Solo
Small, it a very nice hike for those that don't want to walk too far. It is up a hill, so be prepare for that. Paths are well tended and there are several trails that you can make into a longer hike if desired.

Easy flat trails for a leisurely walk in the woods
Oct 2016
We really enjoyed walking the trails. A little rocky with roots, but flat. You can spend up to two hour or so if you do both trails. The property is just 10 min. from the center of Milord

Relaxing walk in the woods
Aug 2016 • Couples
The rural nature park has trails through the oaks and pines of the Poconos. It is perfect for a hike avoiding the heat of mid day and a great location for a picnic.

A Beautiful Nature Preserve minutes from town
Jun 2016 • Family
One of the most peaceful hiking trails in Pike County that meanders thru a forest of mature trees. You will experience nature at her finest while sharing you experience with deer, bear, wild turkey and the occasional snake. Wear good shoes. Bring Water and enjoy..

A wonderful gift of Nature
May 2016 • Couples
It is not easy to find a place where one can meander thru a beautiful forest on a well-maintained gentle pathway and spend an hour or two doing it. Just off Highway 6...which by the way spans across the entire USA.....between Milford and Hawley, PA., this preserve is the perfect place for young and old to take a easy walk thru the woods and appreciate the ever-changing natural landscape.

New preserve with trails, picnic pavilion, restroom & more to come
Feb 2016 • Couples
This 300-acre property straddling Route 6 & two townships (Milford & Dingman) was donated for public enjoyment by the Charles Bridge family, who owned it for generations. The 250-acre Northern Parcel opened in late 2015, with hiking & mountain bike trails through mostly deciduous forest, meadows & wetlands.

The paved Cornelia Trail is the main one, wide & firm, ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) accessible (packed rock chip paved), a fairly gentle trail with switchbacks for a meandering walk up to the meadow-set new pavilion with picnic tables & restroom. Along the way there are very nice rustic low benches made of planed tree trunks set on tree trunk rounds. The Florence Trail is unpaved & you can get to a small pond & wetlands, though a good portion of the trail is near Route 6 and you do hear the traffic; you can also see the remnants of an old one-room schoolhouse near the road. The trails are not very steep and have post markers. More trails are planned. The design incorporates anti-erosion techniques, with little watering holes here and there, berms, and something labeled "rain garden" on the map posted near the parking lot, though it was not apparent what that is to be.

We went on a warm sunny day in February, & had downloaded a map from the web before we went (which was handy since the map box at the parking lot was empty, which I think is excusable in February). We saw no birds at all, though two chipmunks were amusing.

The names "Cornelia & Florence" honor Charles Bridge's mother & wife. A master plan for future development of both tracts can be seen on the dingmantownship.org website, which includes eagle nest viewing at Sawkill Pond in the Southern Parcel.

Overall a nice and fairly easy walk, good for families & walking the dog, with a pleasant spot for a picnic. The sign does warn to keep an eye out for rattlesnakes & ticks.
