Inside Jersey Magazine writes about South Jersey Trails!

I have to imagine my 15 minutes of fame is coming to an end soon, but Inside Jersey Magazine interviewed me as part of a bigger set of articles on the pine barrens.  Thank you to Jenn Hall for reaching out, and for having such a nice little write up!

Mike McCormick, of Barrington, didn’t set out to create the definitive South Jersey hiking guide. It’s just that it didn’t exist. Now, his website, launched in March 2013, covers more than

Penns Hill Trail – Wells Mills County Park – Waretown, NJ

My buddy Pat and I went hiking at the height of the July heat at Wells Mills.  Luckily, it was in the upper 90s with a million percent humidity.  And we decided to do the Penns Hill Trail (labeled at the Marci Trail on the maps, but different on the signs)… 8.4 miles.

For the review and a million pictures, check the now UPDATED post for Wells Mills County Park, where we added all about the new-to-us trail and our grand (aka, hot) adventure that thankfully had blueberries:
