It was one of the first decent late spring days of the season. So without hesitation we decided to go on a hike. It was beautiful! There are a few pictures to prove it!
If you want to go there's a link below including a map with the specific location and more.
in the meantime here's a few photos of our adventure
It took us more than one or two tries to get it right. But when we finally did boy was it worth it! THIS MAP pays out the necessary details to help you find how to get there exactly without any problems at all.
We rented a car as a group and made the trip in under 2 hours one way. If you choose to take public transit the hike is a little more intense. You'll have to hire a taxi once you arrive but it's not terribly far from the train station to the park. Once in the park you'll have to walk but still worth it. You can also bring you bike a long and make a day of it. However you end up going we know you will have a great time! Tell us about your adventure in the comments below!
Depending on where you live in the area getting to Gunnison can be a pain in the ass, or a total breeze. Many from NYC or without cars use Seastreak Ferry, a fairly convenient though mildly pricey service that gets you to the island in under an hour. The two departure piers in NYC are at 35th Street and Wall Street - Pier 11. The first bus of every day gets you a reduced rate round trip ticket at $30 - a deal compared to $46 normal.
Once you get to the island you'll notice on the Sea Streak website there is a fairly regular bus schedule that gets you from the Sandy Hook Pier to Gunnison Beach or any of the other attractions on the shore.
what if i get a boner on the beach?
WHAT TO BRING
Unlike many other Jersey shore beaches, Gunnison doesn't have a boardwalk and tons of vendors and restaurants, which is nice but also means you gotta bring it all with you. The National Park Service also has a strict "you pack it in, you pack it out" rule. So be mindful. But here's a short list:

EVERYbody comes to HAVE FUN
Gunnison attracts all kinds of people; from families, kids, couples, burners, queers, Trump voters, and everything in between. We're all there to leave our inhibitions and clothing behind and get that sun on every inch of our body. So have fun, go meet people, get out there - even if you go alone - you'll meet amazing people and make incredible connections. So dive in, enjoy the view, and make a friend or two.
Whether you're here by yourself, with a group, or with your family Gunnison is a magical place. We'll see you there.
