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.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, and no goal to profit - we share trail data for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes money and a lot of time and effort (including espresso shots) to run the site. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
