  • Enjoy a relaxing stroll to the ocean on a well maintained path and behold the beauty. In a short walk with my daughter we enjoyed seeing a box turtle, a rabbit, a cardinal and a red-winged blackbird. ...  more »
  • The best part of every trip to Cape May is a guided bird walk in the South Cape May Meadows. Do yourself a favor: get a copy of the Kestrel Express at Cape May Bird Observatory and find out when the b...  more »

  • I visited here July 22-23, 2018. I had been here twenty years ago and very little has changed. That's a good thing! The walking trail is well maintained and offers many opportunities to see native wildlife. The beach access was the first time I'd seen the ocean in years. In addition to the swallows, geese, and common birds, I got a chance to see the endangered oystercatchers and least terns. Seeing and osprey dive and bring out a fish from the water in the wetland area was a great treat. Highly recommended!
  • The Meadows one of the most peaceful and ecologically rich spots in Cape May and the entire Delaware Estuary. I am not a pro birdwatcher but this place is a great training ground: always shorebirds, herons, egrets, raptors (osprey, hawks) and tons of other stuff I can't identify. A network of connected tidal ponds, marsh boardwalks and upland forest zones create a lot of landscape variety along the many trail loops.
  • Great nature walk with the family. Looking closely we saw lots of small animals besides birds like bunnies and some tiny frogs. Great place to visit when we were looking to get away from the beach for a few hours.
  • Beautiful preserved piece of nature. Was making our way to sunset beach so we ran short on time but from what we did hike the place is gorgeous. Need to go back to traverse the rest of the trail.
  • Great trails for walking or running. Excellent place for birding. An observation platform overlooks several mutflat pools, and there are meadows and shoreline. A short trail connects the meadows to Cape May Point State Park. My favorite summer birding location in Cape May.
