    Anyone planning on hiking in on Friday? I was thinking of a test hang before heading up to the NEHHA and this would be a great chance.

    I'm up in North Jersey at the inlaws Thursday, staying over Friday. Won't be back until later Friday night. Otherwise I would have loved to make this a two day weekend trip. But if you wanted you could always solo Friday, and hike from wherever you end up staying over to Lower Forge to meet up with us Saturday.

    Man this sounds great but I promised the wife I would paint the LR & DR this weekend. Maybe she will understand that the great outdoors are calling...again.

    Where exactly is this? I'm in Little Ferry and if I don't have to work the weekend I'd be interested.

    Wait, you mean you would rather be out in the woods than camping in a best buy line for the newest gadget?

    Ss i'm looking forward to meeting you too. Maybe carpool?

    Exit 52, New Gretna, on the Garden State Parkway, then follow the signs to Batsto Village. Don't bother with Mapquest or Google Maps or any of those online directions. They'll send you on a wild goose chase - just follow the signs.

    http://www.batstovillage.org

    At Batsto Village office (closes 4 pm) you can get a camping permit for Lower Forge ($3 for residents, $5 for out-of-staters, I think). They also have maps of the Batona Trail and Mullica River Wilderness Trail, either of which are suitable for getting to Lower Forge.

    http://www.state.nj.us/dep/parksandf...atona14web.pdf

    I prefer taking the Mullica River Wilderness trail 'cause there's less ticks (not a problem this time of year), and I don't get lost on that trail as much because it doesn't switch back on itself and is better marked. The Mullica trail is much less overgrown than that section of the Batona (hence less ticks). There's also a water pump at Mullica River Wilderness campsite (4 miles in) so you can fill up on water if you don't want to filter.
