The New Jersey Coastal Heritage Trail Route was established in 1988 to provide for public appreciation, education, understanding, and enjoyment of significant natural and cultural sites associated with the coastal area of the State of New Jersey. The Coastal Heritage Trail is divided into five regions linked by the common heritage of life on the Jersey Shore and Raritan and Delaware bays. The trail is intended primarily for vehicular tourism.
Leashed pets are permitted in the park, but are not allowed in the buildings. Leashes must be no longer than six feet.
