West Deptford Scenic Trail Description

For birders and other wildlife watchers, the short West Deptford Scenic Trail offers an opportunity for a remote and tranquil stroll through a beautiful natural area. Located within a 90-acre area of grasslands and woodlands, the walking trail is not open to cyclists. The flat route is a popular destination for those seeking out some of the bird species that either call New Jersey home or pass through on their annual migration, including northern bobwhites, brown thrasher and great horned owls.

The trail is surrounded by dense woods, offering some respite from the sun in summer. The surface is dirt and grass and is uneven in sections. A spur trail to a wetland area offers a water view as well as an opportunity to spot species attracted to this habitat. The trail is not heavily used and offers a remarkably remote feeling considering its proximity to dense suburban surroundings, including Philadelphia, located just across the Delaware River.

Parking and Trail Access

Access the West Deptford Scenic Trail from Riverwinds Drive (west of Grove Avenue) in West Deptford, where a small parking lot is available.

West Deptford Scenic Trail Reviews

This was a nice walking path on a very hot day because it was mostly shaded.
