LOCATION NOTES:

General Information:
Recreational: the Maurice (pronounced ‘More-iss’) River is a twisty path through beautiful pine woods that’s actually only a couple blocks from a bustling New Jersey thruway. Once on it, you’re in another world.

Difficulty & Must Haves:
It tends to be narrow, so your paddling skills will be tested. The most difficult part used to be just getting your boat to the put-in. We would have to stop on a blind curve of a busy road, throw our boats and gear over a guard rail and hope we weren’t smashed by a Jersey driver. The county has since widened the shoulder a bit, so it’s a little safer. The water moves quickly, and there are always fallen trees. Short boats (12 ft or less) are the rule, as in all Pine Barrens paddles. No helmets or skirts required. There are low trees that will limit bigger canoes.

Nice to Have & Human Interest:
We like the Maurice because it is relatively close to Delaware and a lot of fun to paddle. Lunch is at the bridge at Garden Road. The paddle is usually followed by a trip to Mood’s Farm Market for pick your own fruit (in season).

Additional Notes & Shuttle Info:
No porta-potty at either the put-in, lunch, or take-out. Very easy shuttle. Shuttle: 39°29’48.3″N 75°04’33.5″W https://mapsengine.google.com/map/edit?mid=zjduWflhNnK4.kMssF0xpR9aA
