Trail destinations vary from historic sites to natural areas, and activities and special events vary accordingly. Visitors should contact individual destinations for more specific information. Typical historic areas include lighthouses, marinas, Coast Guard stations, indigenous boat collections, defensive forts, and historic towns -some with unique architectures. Natural areas such as coastal beaches, maritime forests, and salt marshes provide opportunities for fishing, boating, hiking, and bird watching. Seasonal wildlife migrations are particularly noteworthy. Numerous water related recreational opportunities exist along the Jersey Shore as well.
