A new trail map for Apshawa came out last September. While it’s not unusual for trails to change, there are some huge differences since we last hiked this.
Hiking the Tindey, Swamp, and Interpretive Trails at Jakes Branch, a great park for an easy pine barrens hike with a cool view from the top of the visitor center.
Easy trails plus a playground and picnic area makes this a great destination for families. Be sure to check out the super swanky visitor center and go up five stories to the observation deck for outstanding views of the Pine Barrens!
The state Department of Environmental Protection has delayed issuing federal Recreational Trails Program grants for several months.
