The Devil Went Down to Jersey

The Devil Went Down to Jersey Professional Review and Guide

"Located in the heart of one of the most urbanized areas of the
United States, the Pine Barrens is a 1.1-million-acre area of Atlantic coast that remains almost entirely undeveloped. Though many settlements rose and fell during this region’s long history, few stand now as anything other than desolate ghost towns.

For hikers, the backbone of this area is the BAck TO NAture Trail (or BATONA), which traces a 50-mile path through this wild country. Though it is unlikely that you’ll catch a glimpse of the fabled Jersey Devil, you’re almost certain to cross paths with a number of unusual reptiles, amphibians, orchids, and carnivorous plants."
