Until yesterday the Wading River was one of several Pine Barren rivers on the "to do" list. A 50 deg. January 23rd was my first '09 river trip and it was led by George and Leona Fluck and sponsored by NJ Sierra Club. I hitched a ride down with Chris Meyers and we joined two kayakers for the 6-mile run down a truly pristine river - classic Pine Barren habitat in the Wharton State Forest.
The ice formations along the edge of the river were exquisite and we enjoyed a truly relaxing and mellow trip. Mostly Atlantic White Cedar forest surrounded the winding river with white sand beaches and tannic tea colored water.
Great winter river.
