The Manasquan Reservoir Trail is located in the Howell Township and provides a great natural destination in the heart of the town. The trail forms a perimeter loop around the 770 acre reservoir offering great wildlife viewing of osprey, hawks, ducks, and nesting bald eagles and a wonderful view of the entire lake from the visitor’s center. Also, within the park is an environmental center where visitors can participate in interactive exhibits, multi-media presentations, wildlife observation areas, and other wildlife educational activities. The Manasquan Reservoir serves as both a water source for the town and a natural setting for recreation. Boating and fishing are permitted with purchase of a daily or seasonal pass and fishing license. Equestrians, hikers, cyclist, and walkers are all permitted. Dependent on weather conditions; ice-skating, ice-boating and ice-fishing are permitted during the winter season.
From I-195, take exit 28B to Route 9, northbound. Right at first traffic signal onto Georgia Tavern Rd. Environmental Center entrance will be on the right before the reservoir causeway.
