There are a number of short hiking trails at Piscataway Park. Six are located within the boundary of the National Colonial Farm, and most of these can be combined together to form longer loops. The Marsh Boardwalk Trail is located to the east of the farm, and the Piscataway Creek Trail is situated within a detached unit of the park located near Fort Washington Park, another unit of the National Park system.

I hiked the Paw Paw and Bluebird Trails at the farm, but the voice notes I made when doing so went missing and I cannot write a review without them—all of this stuff just runs together in my head many months later. The Bluebird Trail is easy, but from what I remember of the Paw Paw Trail, it is quite hilly and poorly marked. I remember getting confused as to where to go a few times. However, the farm area is small, so it’s not like you can get lost forever.
