Point where CR-670 crosses the Maurice River
08329 Mauricetown , NJ 39° 17' 9.582" N, 74° 59' 35.5272" W
Comments: 

It's 10.6 miles one way to Delaware Bay

It would most likely be a fine location for wildlife. We saw at least 10 bald eagles. But we really were slugging against the tide though. There is a township park just over the bridge in Mauricetown, along the Maurice River that is a fabulous place for seeing thousands of swallows in the fall. Also a nice place for a picnic.
