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!

Occassionally, I even spell words right.
