Get your hiking shoes out for a hike along the Batona Trail with guide John Volpa.

Pinelands Adventures’ eight-mile hike begins at On’s Hat, the origin of this unique name will provide the first of many Pine Barrens lore stories along the way. Hikers will be looking for earl spring bloomers such as pyxie, Cassandra, and “neverwet.” Shadbush will signal a story of the American Revolutionary Army’s survival. If the temperature rises to 55 degrees, you will try to find some local “herps” (salamanders, frogs, etc.). The pace will be moderate with frequent stops for stories and exploration of the Pine Barrens flora and fauna in wetlands and uplands. Dress in layers for the weather and bring water, snacks, and lunch.
