Maritime Trail – Barnegat Lighthouse State Park – Barnegat Light, NJ

Updated the Maritime Trail with a few new pictures from our visit this weekend and a few more trail details. For those who have never been, this trail is really short (less than 1/4 mile), but offers a glimpse back into a time when the barrier islands of the Jersey shore were wood covered dunes, as well as great views of Barnegat Lighthouse. Don’t let the short length turn you off, this is one of our absolute favorite trails in South Jersey.
