Big fun for little feet-discover the best hikes for kids in the Garden State

  • 85 hikes chosen for kid appeal (15 trails new to this fully revised edition)
  • Short, fun hikes between 1 to 8 miles, clearly rated easy to difficult
  • Tips on hiking with children and engaging them in the natural world

From the northern highlands of New Jersey to the beaches and pine barrens in the south, this popular guide is written from a child's eye view (but always emphasizes safety). Kids can check out an accessible beaver colony along the trail at Heddon Park; scamper over huge boulders while overlooking the Hudson River; or look for ersatz diamonds on a Cape May Beach. Trail descriptions highlight points of interest, opportunities for learning about nature on the trail, best places to camp or fish, and more.
