Full Moon Hike in the Warren Grove Recreation Area which encompasses the Little Pine Plains section of “pygmy pines” – the world’s largest acreage of this globally rare forest community. Portions of the hike will be through places where the mature trees are scarcely taller than the hikers themselves and in some places are not. The hike is 3-4 miles and will traverse several ridges that will provide views of the surrounding area and the rising moon.

Directions: Turn onto Simm Place Road from Ocean County Road 539 in downtown Warren Grove. Take the first right on Simm Place Road and turn onto Beaver Dam Road.
