That's great, thanks for the local help. My plan is to run the trail one day, camp on the other side, and run it back the next day. I checked Uber and Lyft and they both say they have support in Atlantic city. I suppose I could rent a car or take a normal cab if necessary. I've never been to Jersey before, I'm from upstate New York though so I'm familiar with the type of trails and things to expect up there, although Batona looks pretty flat. I have a fascination with all things Cryptid and have always wanted to get into the Pine Barrens because of the Jersey Devil legend. Going for a good trail run is as good of an excuse as any to get up there.
Hello Dawn, thank you for the welcome. I came here with a question. I'm a runner and hiker in Florida and was looking at doing the Batona trail in April. Does anybody have any suggestions on where to start and stay? I was looking at Bass River because it's close to the airport. Would it be pretty easy to stay the night there and catch an Uber ride to Bass river for an early start the next day? Any suggestions are appreciated.
Hi Dawn thanks for the welcome. Do you do any shorter hikes as a group? I recently started hiking mainly ramapo reservation. I don't want to commit to a 5+ hour hike just yet. I'm interested in meeting new people and enjoying the outdoors. Any help you could provide would appreciated.
