Into the woods

Spring has sprung (almost!) so now is the time to start planning some outdoor adventures. Even though it feels as though we are trapped in a tangle of highways and a sea of asphalt here in central New Jersey, there are a surprising number of hiking trials, open space areas, and wilderness spots practically at our doorstep. So take a look at some of these websites, grab a map, the dog, your kids or partner and step out into the wilds of New Jersey.
