Formerly East Whitehouse Greenway
The name of this open space has been changed back to its original name, which more accurately reflects the location and the community in which it is situated.
Tucked right behind the Village of Whitehouse are over a hundred acres of preserved woodland, fields, trails, benches, bridges and the bluffs along the picturesque Rockaway Creek. About two miles of trails over level and gently sloping terrain take the walker on an easy walk through the cedar and oak woods, featuring a visit to the bluffs and the Creek. The trails are shady on the wooded open space, so nice if it's hot!
The preserve is bounded on the south by the Whitehouse United Methodist Church and the residences on the north side of Old Highway, to the east by the East Whitehouse Ballfield and East Whitehouse Fire Company, on the north by N.J. State preserved land and on the west by the Rockaway Creek and private property.
There are two access points. One is from East Whitehouse Park, behind the fire house, with parking at the ball field lot. The other is at the curbside of Old Highway, between 59 and 63 Old Highway about four houses west of the Methodist Church. Both trail entrances are marked by large information kiosks.
Hikers are asked to stay on the marked trails and to not stray on nearby private property. If you are on the trail marked with Readington trail markers, you can be confident you are on public land.
