Last week, I shared some camping and plant photos, and this being summertime I felt I should take advantage of the weather to share some more!

There’s a special, simple pleasure in getting outside in the warm weather, and “getting away” doesn’t have to involve a lot of money. In fact, you can get out and enjoy nature here in New Jersey on a tankful of gas, or less!

So, whether you want to go camping, experience a fawn just walk up into your camp or check out a sleeping bee while getting fresh air and keeping fit, hiking, biking, camping, and walking in New Jersey can be the perfect answer to avoiding crowded beaches and giving the family something fun, low-cost, and low-stress to do!

Simply hiking provides all of the fun of the outdoors without the investment of camping equipment, too! NJ Hiking is a fantastic site to visit to plan out a hiking trip so you can experience the sites and sounds of nature right in your own backyard without a large investment in time, money, or gas.

Imagine hitting the trail in the morning, and the beach in the afternoon. Or, enjoying nature at midday and still be home in time for dinner. At the NJ hiking site, walks are categorized too, so if you want to enjoy the sights and sound of waterfalls, find a bike trail, or even go kayaking, NJ Hiking is for you!
