Did you know that the Rancocas Creek is one of the most prominent and important waterways in Burlington County? It supported Native Americans and European settlers for centuries and, as witness to the evolution of its watershed, the Rancocas has in turn provided a means of transportation, commerce, industry and recreation for generations.

From its headwaters in the pitch pine lowlands of Ocean County, the North Branch of the Rancocas Creek meanders its way over about 30 miles through Mirror Lake in Browns Mills and on past forests of maple, hickory and oak, to the main stem in Hainesport Township. The North Branch transitions from a typical, quiet Pinelands stream with low banks and the distinctive 'cedar water' tint to a wider and steeper-banked waterway moving through closed canopy forests of tall hickory, oak, red maple and tulip poplar.
