Trail Guides

Outside of Hammonton, the self-proclaimed blueberry capital of the world, the Northwest corner of Atlantic County has a pleasing “middle-of-nowhere” feel, with seemingly endless stretches of pitch pine and blueberry forest. After exploring Hammonton Lake Park, you’ll venture into the wilderness of three expansive wildlife management areas. Watch for lizards at Hammonton Creek, listen for treefrogs in the headwaters of the Great Egg Harbor River, and look closely for carnivorous plants and showy damselflies at Makepeace Lake. Enjoy a picnic at Weymouth Furnace and scan for bluebirds at Michael Debbi Park. Finally, see how many turtles you can spot in the quiet, lily-speckled waters of Cedar Lake.
