This is on the marsh with beautiful scenery and a lot of wild life including deer, Osprey, owls and turtles just to name a few. There is also a wild life... More

You get a nice view of the bay and the amusements at Seaside Heights. Great view of the birds & wildlife. If you visit when it is hot out, bring bug spray.

I like the diversity of the habitats to walk in. There is beach, woods and salt marshes. The nature center has been closed since Sandy, but there is still a platform that over looks the salt marshes. It's a great place for birding.

If exercise is in your regular cards, you must wear yourself out in walking the never ending trails at Cattus Island County Park. They've worked out special little surprises that will help your visit be particularly fun and challenge your creativity. We were pleased to see that the park has survived Sandy, aside from some remnants of natures trimmings resulting... More

Although the center has not yet reopened from Sandy this is a great place for a long walk. We take our dog and she loves when we get to the beach so she can jump in. Lots of beautiful flora and watch for the birds. Very peaceful.

This is a little Ocean County gem. Several trails so unless you're on a main trail you may not see anyone. Flat and easy to navigate for anyone. Dogs on a leash are welcome. Dogs (or anyone else) are not allowed to swim but if you're discrete you can get away with it. It's so hard to find a spot... More

The park has very nice hiking trials, beach, picnic tables, and plenty of parking. The Cooper Environmental Center was severally damaged during hurricane Sandy. Plans are on the way to rebuild the Center. The Pinelands has strict environmental rules, and that is good. The whole idea is to preserve the Earth, so patience. Meanwhile, enjoy and support the over 500... More

A rare surviving slice of nature in the over-developed Barnegat Bay area. Great for hiking, bird watching, nature hunts, and teaching your children The Jersey Shore isn't just boardwalks and arcades. Just watch out for ticks.
