Great Egg Harbour River in New Jersey

Trip Overview

New Brooklyn Dam - Winslow Rd

Our original goal was to take a day trip from Brooklyn Dam all the way down to Weymouth Furnace. There were a LOT of down trees along the way... in the 4.75 miles we actually accomplished (in FIVE hours), I think we were out of our kayaks and dragging them over logs at least ten times.

We heard there would be a lot of branches and were prepared with saws and hatchets to clear paths (and we did). This was one heck of an obstacle course and definitely a good time.

I wish we had gone out prepared to camp and make it a two+ day trip. Next time we go out we are going to continue from Winslow Rd and complete (try to complete) the original planned trip (or maybe all the way out to OC)
