Trail Guides

While the odds may not always work in your favor at the casinos in Atlantic City, you’re almost guaranteed to have a great experience in the surrounding natural areas along the Birders’ Gamble trail. Start inland exploring the many quiet, piney ponds at Birch Grove Park before cruising up to the pristine barrier beach at the North end of Brigantine Island. Take a scan from Absecon Lighthouse, the tallest in New Jersey, and then head South to check out a fantastic Black Skimmer nesting colony at Malibu Beach. Try some angling at Klingener Fishing Pier and JFK park before returning inland to the wonderful and little-known Egg Harbor Township Arboretum.
