  • Welcome to the Wescott Preserve.  This Hunterdon County Park sign can be seen at one of the three parking lots for accessing Wescott; this is the main parking area on Raven Rock—Rosemont Road.  There hikers will find the looped Wescott Trail, but two other trails run through the park.  Mimi’s Trail begins at another parking area on Raven Rock—Rosemont Road for the adjacent Zega-Lockatong Preserve, owned by Hunterdon Land Trust.  This trail meets up with Peter’s Trail, which begins at a parking area on Strimples Mill Road and runs through the rest of Wescott Preserve.  Wescott Preserve is named for Lloyd B. Wescott, the founder of Hunterdon Medical Center, who donated the first parcel of land in 1966.  This was the first County park, predating even the Parks Division, which was established in 1973.
