Hither Hills State Park (Walking Dunes)

approx. 200 of 1400 acres

Parking is limited, so avoid days when crowded. Great local area for traditional harvesting of wild cranberries.  Trails loop the area. Hilly walking. 

Observe how the dunes appear to be walking over the pine barrens.  Noteworthy: The dunes walk in a geologic time frame.
