Format: Paperback
This is a revision to the classic "Canoeing the Jersey Pine Barrens" originally published by the same author through Globe Pequot Press.

Although the fast paced development of this NJ area makes a guide such as this very difficult to keep updated and current, this was a much needed revision to the original canoeing guides.

The history, obstacles, maps & charts, launch & rental sites, approximate paddling times, and grades for each river make this guide ideal for both canoeists and kayakers. Listings for Pinelands preservation and conservation organizations are also included so those who treasure these rivers can support the cause.

If you are paddling in NJ, you won't want to miss at least one of the Pine Barren Rivers and this is the guide you will need.

This book gives the paddler a wealth of information about the variouse paddling trips in the Pine Barrens. I have paddled the Oswego from lake harrision to lake oswego it was a fun few hours. I'm looking forward to more trips because of the information in this book.

Reader Darren supplied incorrect credit for this book. Globe Pequot Press was not the original publiser. The publisher was Fast & McMillan, with the imprint of The East Woods Press, a small regional publishing group in New York City.
