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.

Regardless of death heat trying to crush me, this is one of my new favorites in South Jersey, so you know it must be good.

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:
