MIDDLESEX COUNTY – Middlesex County Freeholder Carol Barrett, liaison to the county’s Open Space Committee, announced the winners of the Tamarack Hollow Preserve trail naming contest on Wednesday.
The winning entries are:
First place – “Hidden Holly Trail” from Theresa Seidler and Joe Rutch, East Brunswick
Runners up – “Holly Hollow Trail” from Owen B. Sheard, East Brunswick
“Barkley Run” from the Agey Family, East Brunswick
Honorable Mentions – “Larch Trail” and “World Tree Trail”
The contest was open to all students and residents who hiked the new half-mile, orange blazed trail at the Tamarack Hollow Preserve in East Brunswick, and was sponsored by the Board of Chosen Freeholders and the Middlesex County Department of Parks and Recreation to mark the opening of several new trails at the Preserve. The new trails and parking area were completed this past summer by the Middlesex County Youth Conservation Corps.
“Numerous entries were received and choosing a winner was difficult,” said Barrett. “There were suggestions from local residents of all ages, some who have been neighbors to the Preserve all of their lives. I would like to thank everyone who took the time to send in their suggestions and help us give a name to this beautiful new trail.”
The Parks Department encourage everyone to explore the Tamarack Hollow Preserve and the new Hidden Holly Trail. Directions, trail maps and additional information about the preserve can be found on the Middlesex County Parks Department web site, http://co.middlesex.nj.us/parksrecreation/index.asp.
