The Churchill Nature Preserves provides a wonderful opportunity for birding and nature study in a small suburban woodland. The trail head (a blue blaze) begins near the main entrance on Churchill Road.

The blue trail completes a loop around the entire nature preserve and is maintained by a local Boy Scout troop.  Signs have been placed to inform the hiker of the various flora and fauna that may be found in the preserve. The blue trail contains two bridges and one stream crossing. The stream is a tributary of Overpeck Creek, which in turn is a tributary to the Hackensack River.

Churchill Nature Preserve contains diverse flora including:

Three benches have been placed throughout the preserve and are perfect to take a seat to bird watch and look for other wildlife.

This little preserve is the perfect place to get a quick fix of nature when you are on the go.
