Although Cape May Lighthouse is a major attraction for many visitors to the area, the parks constantly changing shoreline, dunes, freshwater coastal marsh and ponds, forested islands and varied uplands make it a well-known location for viewing the fall bird migration. Located on the southern tip of New Jersey, Cape May Point State Park is a key site on the NJ Coastal Heritage Trail, with an environmental center that houses a classroom for interpretive programs and a museum on the area's natural and historic features.

After coming to Cape May for nearly 50 years, I figured I'd see what was behind this tiny little parking lot with the 3 cars in it. What an amazing little gem! A trail leading straight to the beach with a stop on a foot bridge to gaze over a low land waterway teeming with swan and other fowl. Beautiful flowers and heavy marshland growth throughout. A million dragon flies and a wonderful view of the Cape May Lighthouse which is in the state park right up the street. If you're in Cape May, treat yourself to this one.

Collado was here couple weeks back.. Awesome sunset by the Light House & the beach to relax...

I really enjoyed this easy trail. we walked both the yellow and red trail. They were peaceful and relaxing surrounded by wildflowers. The red trail is definitely handicap accessible. Not only was it flat and in a boardwalk but there were benches throughout the walk.

on Cape May Point Trail

I walked around the bird refuge. The trail over to the state park hit a dead end due to birds nesting nearby, but the refuge was still enjoyable. The sandy paths can get quite hot, so I would suggest walking this in the morning. Go early and beat the crowd, as it will be much more peaceful and you will see more birds.
