This is the first time we'd gotten around to checking out Bass River State Forest. We'd always headed to the other Pine Barrens area parks instead, mainly because I'd never had much info on the trails here.

The Woods of Wenonah is a U-shaped wooded area that surrounds the town of Wenonah. It has several short trails, with access paths that lead off into neighborhoods. It's not remote by any means, as houses are visible along most of the route. It's a nice little park though, and we felt the Comey's Lake area was the prettiest part.
If you are in the South…Continue
