The Easy 1-Mile Winter Hike In New Jersey That’s Positively Bewitching

Some of us hibernate during the winter, waiting for warmer weather to brave the outdoors. I admit, I was guilty of this for a long time. But if you keep to indoor attractions all season long, you’ll be missing out on some pretty spectacular stuff. I highly recommend everyone bundle up after the next snowfall and head to one of the Garden State’s gorgeous hiking trails.
