Happy 10th Birthday to us – today South Jersey Trails turns 10 years old! In celebration of 10 long years, we are doing a series of birthday posts. Look, here’s one right now!
Five years ago, we had hiked just over 160 trails in South Jersey, so we came up with our list of the Top 20 Hiking Trails in South Jersey. Well, another 5 years and close to another 100 new-to-us trails, it’s about time for another Top 20 list! That turned into a Top 25 list (and threatened to become a Top 30 list) because it’s too hard to leave so many great trails off the list!

Well, eight long years ago I started with a dream and a free website. That dream was to some day ride through the wilds of the West on the back of my loyal cow steed – Lullabell – where I’d foil robberies and find gold.
[Note to editor – insert picture of me riding a cow here]
Anyway, haven’t managed that particular dream yet. BUT, I have ended up with a website about hiking in South Jersey. I go out, usually with some number of my four children, and we go on an adventure on a trail in South Jersey. Then I do a little write up about the trail and put some pictures up. Occassionally, I even spell words right.
