Port Norris Pathway Description

This community trail begins at the intersection of Main and Pearl streets in the town of Port Norris, near the mouth of the Maurice River. It connects Port Norris with Bivalve. At one time the area was a center for the oystering industry. The trail passes through a short stretch of woods before following the bank of a stream; a small bridge carries the trail across a channel.

Heading south after the bridge the trail runs parallel to High Street (County 631) and terminates at Dubois Street. If you continue down High Street and turn east toward the Maurice River on Germantown Avenue, you will find a wildlife management area with a boardwalk that leads into the saltwater marsh. This area, Bivalve, is the home port of New Jersey's official tall ship, the A. J. Meerwald.

Be sure to catch Delaware Bay Days Festival, hosted by the Bayshore Discovery Project, in mid-June.
