Welcome to Central Jersey Checkpoint Challenge, one stage out of 26 covering all of Central Jersey.
Allaire State Park is probably best known for its historic 19th-century ironmaking town, Allaire Village, and its antique steam trains on the Pine Creek Railroad. The Manasquan River, which winds through the park, attracts canoeists and fishermen. The river's floodplain provides habitat for over 200 species of wildflowers, trees and plants as well as habitat for birds and other wildlife. Hikers, mountain bikers and horseback riders enjoy the many trails in the park.

Official CJCC Information
Central Jersey Geocachers are sponsoring the Central Jersey Checkpoint Challenge series. This challenge series is intended to take geocachers on a tour of Central New
Jersey (loosely defined as north of 195 and south of 78) while finding caches placed by Central Jersey geocachers. On the tour we hope you will find Central Jersey an
interesting and beautiful part of our great state.
This challenge series includes 26 checkpoint caches (naming based on the NATO phonetic alphabet) and the final - Central Jersey Checkpoint Challenge (GC1NJAZ). The
26 checkpoints do not have to be completed in any particular order. See the CJCheckpoint bookmark for the complete list of caches.
Hidden within the 26 checkpoint caches are numbers to be used to calculate the coordinates of the final Central Jersey Checkpoint Challenge cache – please be sure to
note them while you are there.
While there are no special logging requirements for the 26 checkpoint caches, there are special logging requirements for the Central Jersey Checkpoint Challenge cache.
Complete information can be found on the Central Jersey Checkpoint Challenge cache page. In order to claim FTF on the Central Jersey Checkpoint Challenge
(GC1NJ40) or 1 of the additional 26 CeNeJeGeCa coins that will be available you MUST include a picture of your signature from EACH of the 26 checkpoint log books
in your log on the Central Jersey Checkpoint Challenge cache.
