Here are a couple pics showing the proper trailhead for us to meet at.
Turkey Swamp Park is a 1,180-acre (4.78 km²) park located in Freehold Township, New Jersey on the northern fringe of the Pine Barrens. The Turkey Swamp area includes the headwaters of the extensive Manasquan, Metedeconk, and Toms River systems. The chief recreational attraction of this park is the 17-acre (69,000 m2) lake suitable for bass, bluegill and catfish fishing, as well as canoeing and paddle boating.
We will hike about 5 miles and it should take 2-1/2 hrs, give or take. Some sections of trail can be very muddy from people riding horses in the wet areas, so wear shoes you don't care about.
Bring drinks, sunblock, insect repellent, etc.
Hike is weather dependent, so if weather is iffy that morning check this event page for possible cancellation.
