The Batona Trail at Wharton State Forest, NJ, is a 53.5 mile one-way hike that stretches through the Pine Barrens.

Note:
The GPS data for this trail right now only includes 1.7 miles (one-way) along the Batona Trail. You can park near the Carranza Memorial - there's a large parking lot just past the memorial and down the sandy road along the trail.

Camping is allowed on the trail with a permit only and you must camp in the designated camping areas - the permit can be obtained at the park office. Unfortunately there's no dispersed/primitive camping.

The trail is fairly skinny but runs along a sandy road through the park (at least the section mapped here). The surroundings are mostly pine trees with some bogs, fields, and low shrubs. The soil is mostly sandy as well which makes for an interesting hike.

The trail is marked with light-red blazes and has helpful arrow markers when the trail meets intersections and roads.

First time backpacking a trail that someone else added! We camped in early February with a hot tent and Liteoutdoors light weight stove. Got down to about 20 degrees F that night.

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
