Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge, Brigantine Division

Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge, Brigantine Division Review

More than 47,000 acres of coastal habitats—including nearly 5,000 acres of woodland—are protected in this refuge. Peregrine falcons and bald eagles are among the winged visitors. You can take an 8-mi wildlife drive, or walk the 2¼-mi Songbird Trail, or try the Akers Woodland Trail, an easy ¼ quarter mi jaunt. To get here from Atlantic City, head west on U.S. 30, then right on U.S. 9. After about 5 mi, make a right onto Great Creek Road.
