Jersey Devil Hike

Jersey Devil Hike
9 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Leeds Point, Atlantic County

Gather your courage and join New Jersey Conservation Foundation's Chris Jage, Assistant Director for South Jersey, on an 8-mile hike in Leeds Point, Atlantic County, birthplace of the mythical Jersey Devil.

The legend of the Jersey Devil dates back to the 1700s when Mother Leeds - reputed to be a witch - gave birth to her 13th child, supposedly the son of the Devil himself. Jersey Devil sightings and encounters have been reported throughout the Pine Barrens in the years since.

The cost of the tour is $5 per person, and advance registration is required.  Limited to 25 people. To register online, click here. For more information, contact Carol Banhart at or 908-234-1225, ext.126.
