Constitution Marsh Audubon Center and Sanctuary is a tidal marsh that serves as a natural habitat for birds, fish and other wildlife. The trail leads to a 700-foot boardwalk that allows you to traverse the marsh and take in views of Storm King and Breakneck Ridge. Also in this area is a small waterfall, Indian Brook Falls.
Cape May State Park lies on the southernmost tip of New Jersey, with views of the ocean and the 157-foot-high Cape May Lighthouse. The Cape May Point Natural Area contains migratory birds and other wildlife, as well as four miles of trails through dunes, ponds, marshes, and forests.
