Barnegat Lighthouse State Park is joining many other state parks, forests, recreation areas and historic sites across the country in hosting a First Day Hike.

Members of the Southern Ocean Birding Group are leading a free, 1½-mile walk from the lighthouse to the end of the jetty. Meet in the parking lot near the entrance by 10 a.m.

No registration required.

We recommend bringing binoculars, camera, water and snacks. Children age 10 and older, with responsible adult, are welcome, but no pets please. For a more comfortable experience we suggest having boots for walking on the sand and jetty, and appropriate clothing for cold, windy weather just in case. The walk will be canceled if severe icy, rainy or snowy conditions.

For more information or to check for cancellation, check the State Park Service website at
