Fall is finally here, Halloween is just over a month away and Friday the 13th is coming up faster than the creepy creature that’s on your tail. Well, maybe if you’re on this trail.

The trail has plenty of areas for parking and camping along the route, so you can make this hike as long or short as you’d like. I think a good out and back trail would be starting at Ong’s Hat (along Turkey Buzzard Bridge Road, Pemberton) and ending at Deep Hollow Pond, before heading back. The hike would be moderate, at around 5 miles. For another haunted hike in New Jersey, check out Jenny Jump Forest.
