This loop hike covers all of Voorhees State Park.  There is not any views but the hike is peaceful and has some interesting signage about the solar system because of the Observatory that is located in the park.

From the Hoppock Grove parking area, cross the park road and enter the Highland trail (torquoise markers) for a short distance until the trail crosses the Hill Acres Trail (blue markers).  Turn left on the Hill Acres trail and follow for .8 miles until it ends on Hill Acres Rd. Turn right on the road and walk a short distance past an observation point on the left.  Re-enter the forest behind a kiosk on the Solar System Trail (purple markers).  Follow for .25 miles until the trail ends on Hill Acres rd again.

Cross the road and enter the forest on the Vista Trail (pink markers).  The Vista trail has very rocky terrain most of the way.  Follow the trail for 1.3 miles where it ends at a small parking area on Hill Acres Rd.  Turn left and cross the road for a short distance and re-enter the forest on the Cross Park Trail (white markers).  The Highland trail shares the same path so you will also see Torquoise markers.  Stay on the Cross Park trail for 1.2 miles until an intersection with the Brookside Trail (orange markers).  Turn left on the Brookside trail.  The trail runs above and along side Willoughby Brook. 

At .4 miles along the Brookside trail is a bridge on the left at the bottom of a hill.  Cross the bridge to access the Hollow trail (orange markers).  Follow the Hollow trail for .85 miles until it ends at the Tangle Wood trail (green markers). Follow the Tangle Wood Trail for .4 miles until you reach the parking lot where the loop started.
