Biking in the Huber Warbler Preserve

On a Saturday in October, I brought my mountain bike back to the Huber Warbler Preserve to see if I could finally reach the back trails. On all my hikes, I never got much farther than the creek crossing. The trails are not great for biking. The sand on the main roads doesn't give great tire traction, and on the smaller side trails, which don't get much use, you're mostly riding on close-cropped foliage stems.Still, the leaves were pretty in the fall, and it was pleasant enough. A number of deer…See More

"Wow, Linda, that sounds even scarier than my hike. Although had I pushed stubbornly onward (as I usually do) on that nonexistent trail, I would have been in pretty much that situation: all turned around in the dark, no trail, trying to phone for…"

"You relate your adventure, Bob, with such vivid suspense that I think I read it all without blinking! It reminded me of some similar "Lost-In-The-Pine-Barrens' Experiences" we've had as well.   Mostly it rekindled shudders…"

"Thanks for reading. I called the NJ Conservation Foundation that oversees this preserve and they did confirm bow hunters could have been in the area. They do allow hunting. Doesn't make me feel much safer knowing this, but at least I know…"

"Sounds like you had an adventure. I'll have to say the times we've gotten really turned around and actually needed our GPS to get back to the car... were in the Pine Barrens. All that pine and sand trails can really look the same and…"

Lost...in the Michael Huber Prairie Warbler Preserve

The setting sun in the Pine Barrens should have been an ominous sign for me. Instead, the fading light on a beautiful fall day only accentuated the calm and beauty of the quiet woods around me. The chill of the coming evening invigorated me, pushing me onward into the waiting pines.Little did I know that a scant hour later I would be lost and bleeding, running blindly through the night…See More

"I saw several deer stands too, with well established side trails leading to them. So I guess it goes on regularly there. The hunter I encountered said he was with the Conservancy and was thinning out the herd. He should have posted a notice at the…"

"Thanks for this report. Nice to know it's pretty empty in winter. I'd like to try XC skiing there. Is it too overgrown in the back sections for that, do you think? Did you see any hunters there in winter? I went there in Nov. and…"
