Around the Pinelands

Friday, November 24

POST-THANKSGIVING HIKE IN THE WEST PINE PLAINS - This volunteer-led hike will depart promptly at 10 a.m. and will end at approximately 1 p.m. The hike will meander along sand roads and trails near the NJ Forest Fire Service’s Coyle Field in Woodland Township, Burlington County. Skip the Black Friday chaos and instead “optoutside” with a free, calorie-burning, 6-mile hike in Bass River State Forest “North” which encompasses the West Pine Plains Natural Area and the “Pygmy Pines” – the world’s largest acreage of this globally rare forest community. Several sections of the hike will be through places where the mature trees are scarcely taller than the hikers themselves and in some places are not. The hike will traverse several ridges that will provide fantastic views of the surrounding area which is a rarity for this part of the state. Participants must be at least 10 years of age. Service animals only are permitted. Wear appropriate clothes and shoes. Bring plenty of water and snacks. This hike is not ADA accessible. There are no restrooms or drinking water available. The hike will be cancelled if there are thunderstorms in the area or if heavy rain is falling. Light rain or overcast skies will not cancel the hike. Registration is required and is capped at 25 participants. To register or for more information, contact the Bass River State Forest office at 609-296-1114.
