Featured Place: Hacklebarney State Park

Jun 28. 2012: Featured Place: Hacklebarney State Park

We have only visited Hacklebarney State Park one time since finding it a few years ago, and we can not wait to get back. The primary trails are well kept, somewhat challenging, but are not so hard that you will be hurting. The streams, water falls, and the Black River are amazing for fishing, sightseeing, and just enjoying the sounds of rushing water. You will also find a few playgrounds for the little ones to work off the rest of their energy. It is just a great park!

Featured Place: Sourland Mountain Preserve

Jun 22. 2012: Featured Place: Sourland Mountain Preserve

Sourland Mountain Preserve is a great place for a lot of activities. Personally, we hike here once a year, usually in the fall. The trails are challenging for sure. Steep-ish hills, lots of rocks to step around, and simply great views. The mountain biking here is great. Many groups do group rides here to help show people around. Keep an eye out on the JORBA site for these rides.

In 2012, one of our favorite campgrounds in NJ was purchased by a new owner. Green Valley Beach, was bought and renamed to The Great Divide Campground.

Featured Park: Shark River Park

Mar 29. 2012: Featured Park: Shark River Park

Many people that we talk to tell us that they visit Shark River Park at least once a year. Other people have never heard of it. We feel the latter should never be the case. The trails are great to walk / hike / jog. They are also well kept, and trimmed back. The playground off Schoolhouse Road is very modern, and always busy.
