Q: Are these all themed twords northern New Jersey? Do you do any central or Southern NJ boxes?Asked by S P., March 2021

The Hiker's Compass answered...March 2021

Hello,

Yes in the future I will be. Each month features one of NJ State Forests. Central and South Jersey forests will be featured during the late spring and summer months. We will also be adding a non-NJ subscription option in April with more general hiking info.
Thank you,

I have gotten the January and February Hikers Compass packages, and loved them both! It comes with a ton of info about the New Jersey State Forests, maps of the trails, where to find parking, and other activities and places nearby so you can make a full fun day out of it. The pictures on the postcards are beautiful, and all the items that come with it are so cute! This would be a great gift for anyone who loves the outdoors. I can't wait for the next one!

I received my Hiker's Compass packet and I love it! I received it quickly too! I love the entire thing but my favorite parts are the pin, the homemade mask, the bookmark & the paper clip shaped like a little bird. Everything made me smile and I could tell that the packet was assembled with love. It is definitely something to look forward to every month! Also, very affordable!
