During our last day in Cape May, I convinced Bhavna to wake up early and take a walk in Cape May Point State Park. I wanted her to experience the peacefulness of walking among the tall brown grass and lush green trees while listening to the birds singing. I thought it would be a magical experience before heading off to the The Seed, a brewery in Atlantic City that we both had on our bucket list.
After enjoying a quick breakfast at George's Place Cape May, a cosy local restaurant in the downtown area, we made our way to Cape May Point State Park.
Due to time constraints, instead of the Blue Trail, I opted for a shorter hike, walking on the raised platform along the Yellow Trail. We took a left fork, and then another left to Cape May Pond to see the Cape May Lighthouse before returning to the Yellow Trail. We continued on the Yellow Trail until it met with the regular Yellow Trail, and then we doubled back, returning to the parking lot via the Red Trail. This short combination of the Yellow Trail and Red Trail is also called Duck Pond Trail. Duck Pond Trail is wheelchair accessible and offers views of Lighthouse Pond West and East.
