$8/ day for out-of-state (allows you entrance into any state park that day)
Had difficulty finding where to park for the trailheads. Found the trailhead to the lovely Pinelands Trail completely by accident; from the main road you can't see the trailhead. Website is also not updated; the Nature Center was closed so was the Gordon Pond trail, but had to find this out the hard way. I asked at the main gate for other trails, the attendant suggested I park at the beach for another trail...which took me 20 minutes to find because there are two different beach parking lots and because the trailhead is marked only by a nondescript wood post. The trails were easy to follow once you can find the entrance, but still it was unusual not to see signs indicating that a trailhead was nearby. Also, I had to rely on my smartphone to see how long the trails would be -- strange that they would not give a general map or at least the trail distance at the trailhead. I just wanted to park my car and get a few good hikes in, and it was very difficult to figure out how to do this -- can't imagine navigating in the busy season.
Enjoyable day but why are they hiding the trails? Insider only park?? C'mon, put up some signs and roll out the welcome mat for visitors!
