A unique blend of pine barrens, salt-and-fresh-water swamps, hardwood forest and white cedar, Cheesequake (from the Lenape cheseh-oh-ke or 'upland') is just 30 minutes north of Asbury Park by car and is also accessible by train (3 miles from Aberdeen-Matawan Station). There are four easy-to-moderate trails for family treks, swimming and eco-tours by kayak (reserve from June through August).
