Edwin B Forsythe Wildlife Refuge

Recently, I’ve been trying to find day hikes that are close by and something new. Sometimes it works in our favor and sometimes we just end up on a kind of boring hike. The Edwin B Forsythe wildlife refuge has some really pretty views and would probably be great if you’re into bird watching but we just weren’t really feeling this one. This hike was more of a walk as the refuge is really flat and there were big stretches on roads that cars could drive on. If you’re headed to or from Atlantic City and want a little wildlife in your life I’d recommend swinging by here, otherwise this one’s not all that great. We swung by AC on the way home for lunch and walked on the beach. I love the shore in winter so the day wasn’t a total bust. Here are some pics of our fairly boring walk.

We accidentally restarted the trail and found ourselves on this road for the second time. It felt like it was never going to end.

wait, which way are we supposed to go?

It seems someone got a little carried away with the blue paint on this trail. Some of the blazes were huge and excessive.
