Brendan Byrne State Forest
With just over 38,000 acres, Brendan T. Byrne State Forest is the second largest state forest and is located in the pine barrens. The forest offers many outdoor recreational activities such as camping, hiking, mountain biking, birding, fishing and hunting. History enthusiasts will enjoy returning to the early 20th-century by visiting the historic village of Whitesbog where the very first cultivated blueberry was developed. Hikers may pass through natural white cedar swamps, and areas where remains of stone and brick structures indicate the location of a once bustling town.
