What we're about
Upcoming events (4+)
We will hike approximately 7-8 miles through mountain laurel over rolling hills on mostly packed dirt trails. A little more challenging than most of the Pine Barrens trails. We will enjoy views of The Navesink River as well as the ocean. We will also check out the military bunkers from WWII. Dress for the weather. Bring snacks, lunch & water and of course TICK repellent. We will meet at the Rocky Point entrance, 1402 Portland Rd. Highlands. Please text me at[masked] or message me through this site if you have any questions or concerns.
5-7 mi. Moderate pace. We will go from woods, to reservoirs, to bogs. Visit the general store after the hike to buy some chutney, salsa, or blueberry preserves. Stay on Rt. 70 to Rt. 530 or 530 through Browns Mills until you see the signs. Your GPS will either take you down a dead end or down a soft sand road. I leave ON TIME so make sure you know where you're going and give yourself enough time to visit the clivis for a pit stop before we leave. Dogs are always welcome in the back on leash.

6 moderate pace hike in Elk Township, Gloucester County. During the 1800's when the circus was traveling through Elk Township an elephant got loose in the swamp and was never seen again. It is still out there. The hike follows the Pa.- Reading rail line, tracks were removed in the 1980's. This is not a loop hike going three miles to Monroeville Road and back. Bring snack and beverage and elephant repellent.
