Hashtag 59's Season 3 Podcast is 50 Episodes long and each episode will provide SIX outdoor adventures in each of the US's 50 states. We are doing these episodes in ABC Order of the states and episode thirty is New Jersey. The goal is to give you ideas and opportunities to experience outdoor adventure anywhere and everywhere in the United States of America. Here's our list for New Jersey: 1. Hike the Hacklebarney Even on Indian summer days, the Black River Gorge in Hacklebarney State Park (Long Valley) is cool and refreshing, making it an ideal spot to see fall foliage. If you like to hike with your pooch, you'll be happy to know that leashed pets are welcome. 2. Climb Absecon's 228 steps Holding the distinction of the state's tallest lighthouse (at 171 feet), Absecon Lighthouse is one of Atlantic City's most popular attractions. Get a great workout and a fantastic view of AC's skyline with a hike to the top. Are you a lighthouse lover? Then take the annual Lighthouse Challenge, which is held in mid-October (this year, the event is October 15-16). Help preserve NJ's lighthouses while you see how many you can climb 3. Ride a wave In fall, the combination of cooler air temperatures, warm ocean waters and the swells that accompany the Atlantic's hurricane season create the prime time for surfing in New Jersey. No wonder the state boasts some of best surfing on the East Coast 4. Amy K is excited: There’s a rail to trail!!! 331 Miles of Rail-Trails in the state. We love them all take your pick depending on where you are. 5. Visit the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge: eight-mile unpaved Wildlife Drive that winds through a salt-marsh refuge of startling beauty. Along the way, the marvel of an ecosystem situated along the North Atlantic Flyway is revealed. Spring and fall migrations are especially breathtaking. Stop to watch shorebirds dive for fish and shellfish and meander along pathways and up observation towers. Watch for osprey on special nesting platforms. 6. Visit the Grounds For Sculpture: Art lovers (and nature lovers) won't want to miss this 42-acre museum and sculpture park in the town of Hamilton. Established in 1992 to facilitate the appreciation of contemporary sculpture, it has become one of the state's most popular art exhibits, boasting 270 large-scale works by Seward Johnson and other US artists.
