The Chestnut Branch is one of the major tributaries of Mantua Creek. Chestnut Branch flows a bit over seven miles from Glassboro to Mantua (New Jersey). Ceres Park Nature Reserve is one of the best places to get up close to Chestnut Branch.
Here’s a view of Chestnut Branch looking downstream. I took this photo earlier this month from the bank at the bottom of the main trail. My favorite time for visiting is mid-morning during the week. Most of the time, I have the park to myself. The only disturbance to the quiet is the traffic noise from Rt. 55, just outside the park.
Ceres is a delightful place for walking, contemplating and photography.
