  • Wonderful mini get away. Great marked trails. And you can even drive on an 8 mile road through the marshes. I saw birds I have never seen before. And an Eagle's nest. Just beautiful.
  • 8 mile Drive through salt marsh refuge great for bird watching. Atlantic city skyline visible to the south east. Large numbers of migratory birds stop here on their ways north or south. Foot trails exist for those who wish to walk through different areas and see a broader range of wildlife. Some trails and boardwalks must be driven to for access. New building is being finished (spring 2017).
  • Loved the drive through a dirt road with beautiful swamp land on both sides, great place to go bird watching, very relaxing it's like a free zoo without screaming kids
  • Amazing running outside of summer. Besides the 8 mile dirt road, they have 4 miles of trails. One of my favorite places to run when I'm home.
  • Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge is one of my favorite places to go to when I want to take pictures of wildlife. Depending on the time of year not only do you see a good variety of birds you can also see a lot of butterflies and turtles especially the diamondback terrapin. Have your cameras on the front seat next to you and keep your eyes open almost anything can fly by you and be hiding in the bushes. Most of the people you meet there are very friendly and willing to share observations, if you see a several cars stopped on one section of the causeway you can usually stop and ask what it is that they are looking at and most people will tell as soon as your walk up.
