I should mention here about the Batona Trail.

Batona comes from BAck TO NAture.

The trail is 50 miles long. OK 49.5.
It goes from Ong's Hat to Bass River State Forest.

Ongs Hat is a place I want to go to to find a tag to place.
I like the name.

Along this trail you will hike past:
-Apple Pie Hill Fire Tower shown earlier in this thread
-Carranza Memorial
-And end at Bass River SF which is near that giant Champagne Bottle

When I was in Boy Scouts I hiked this trail several times.
It only used to be 35 miles and ended at Batsto.
They extended it later.

It's an easy trail as South Jersey is flat.
The challenge is the soft sandy areas.
But still an easy trail with some great scenic areas.


Information here.
Trail Conference for NY/NJ informatin here.
Some pictures from thebackpacker.com.
And some forums on the trail if anyone wants to hike it.
