Batona Trail Map (New Jersey)
Lose yourself in woods deep enough to terrify mobsters (at least the TV version, in the “Pine Barrens” episode of The Sopranos). But wild in New Jersey doesn’t mean hard: The pancake-flat, 17.6-mile shuttle hike along the 50-mile Batona Trail is mellow enough for newbies, and it’s just an hour’s drive from Philadelphia. You’ll journey alongside the country’s largest cranberry bogs and snag long-distance views from the region’s highest fire tower. Map includes turn-by-turn hiking directions and in-depth trip planning essentials to help you experience this BACKPACKER PRO adventure.
