It's a great time of year to get out there and enjoy the sights!

Now that the weather has (abruptly) cooled down, it is officially what I like to call "Perfect Hiking Season" weather. And lucky for you there are a ton of options in South Jersey.

This 'little red riding hood' kind of weather is the perfect opportunity to check out some trials maybe you haven't had the chance to or to go back to some of your favorite spots.

Whichever the case here are some that I have my eye on this fall...


  • Cape May Point State Park/Google Maps

    Cape May Point State Park

    Cape May, NJ

    The trails here feature miles of marshland, access to the beach, a neat World War II bunker for the history buffs, and the famous Cape May Lighthouse.

    Swamp Trail at Estell Manor County Park

    Estell Manor, NJ

    A boardwalk trail that goes along a river that throughout a swampland for miles on miles? Sign me up!

  • EHT Natural Preserve/Google Maps

    Egg Harbor Township Nature Preserve

    Egg Harbor Township, NJ

    The fact that this used to be a quarry AMAZES me. Almost 6 miles of trails, every foot looks worth it to me.

  • Black Run Preserve/Google Maps

    Black Run Preserve

    Marlton, NJ

    If you are like me, a 'Lord of the Rings' fan, then this should be good. This place reminds me of the bogs Frodo, Sam, and Gollum go through and Frodo falls into the lake of dead people. So boggy!
