NJ Coastal Heritage Trail
The NJ Coastal Heritage Trail is over 127 miles of Atlantic coastline and over 83 miles of shoreline along the Raritan and Delaware Bays.
The New Jersey Coastal Heritage Trail Route "Auto-Route” was established in 1988 through federal legislation to raise awareness and public support, along with stewardship and protection of natural and cultural resources. The auto-route is approximately 300 miles long.
The trail route begins at the Raritan Bay in Perth Amboy , flows to Sandy Hook and then south down the entire Atlantic coast of New Jersey to Cape May. It then hooks back up the Delaware Bay and River from Cape May to Deepwater near the Delaware Memorial Bridge. The New Jersey Coastal Heritage Trail encompasses five regions; Sandy Hook, Barnegat Bay, Absecon, Cape May and the Delsea.
