The NJ DEP is hosting a guided 6-mile hike through Belleplain State Forest. There will be tea, hot chocolate, and homemade treats for humans 10 and older, and for your dogs, after the hike! But be sure to bring snacks and enough water for the hike itself.
This special New Year’s walk is hosted by Megan Ritter and her friendly dogs; she started this tradition five years ago and it has grown in popularity ever since.
The hike will be between 5.5 and 6 miles and should be doable for anybody without a disability. The DEP described the walk as “moderate” – make sure to wear supportive shoes and clothing fitting of a cold January day.
Registration is preferred but not required (walk ups welcome!) Contact Belleplain Office 609-861-2404 or email Megan Ritter at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and about cancellations.
