Site CGF16: Lubber Run Park


One mile of riparian woodlands surround a streambed accessible via a streamside trail. Beyond the riparian corridor, slopes are covered with mixed deciduous forest; however, the stream is a focal point of bird activity. This park is a favorite spot for enjoying spring migrants, including Cape May, black-throated blue, and Wilson's warblers, scarlet tanager, and at least five species of thrushes. The fall migration provides ample viewing as well.


Exit Long Branch Nature Area and turn right onto Carlin Springs Road. Continue 0.6 miles to US 50 East. Travel 0.5 miles and turn left on North Columbus Street; travel 0.2 miles to Lubber Run Park on the Left.
