Bass River State Forest - 2/26/12

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.

It doesn't appear in any of our hiking books other than a mention in the New Jersey Walk Bookof some short trails, and I'd never…

Kakiat County Park to Pine Meadow Lake - 2/19/12

Headed to Harriman again on yet another unseasonably warm February day. This time is was to Pine Meadow Lake from Kakiat County Park.

Musconetcong Gorge Preserve and Sweet Hollow Preserve - 02/26/2012

I had never hiked here because the reviews of the trails were not that great and there were not enough trails for me.  There used to be a map that was hard to follow because it did not show colors to match up to the blazing of the trails.  There is a newer map out now which does show the colors of the trails (although not 100% accurate, it's good enough) and it seems the trails have been reblazed.  There are lots of blazes - never had trouble following the trails.  There is also another…

The Woods of Wenonah - 1/8/12

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…
