The Jersey Devil and Pine Barrens Folklore Guided Hike


The Pine Barrens have long been a place where legends, tales, and mythical creatures are born. For many years, these stories were not written down, but told over a roaring campfire or whispered in dark corners from person to person. Join us for a guided hike in the forest where we’ll continue in the rich history of Pine Barrens storytelling. Our guide will tell myths and legends that have been passed down for generations and discuss the true historical figures who feature in them.

Guests should wear comfortable hiking/walking shoes. We will mainly be walking on packed sand, but there will be areas with softer sand or areas that are wet. Waterproof hiking boots are the best option. Dress in layers and be prepared for the weather. Remember, it’s often chillier in the forest! Bring water, snacks, sunscreen, bug spray, and anything else that you need for a successful 2.5 mile hike.
