More than 13,000 acres of land in Wharton State Forest burned this past June, in one of the state's biggest forest fires in years.
When the trails in the park reopened in July, it gave visitors an easy way to see how the forest is coming back to life.

On today's segment of "Brian's Positively New Jersey," Brian hits the trails for a look at how fire keeps the New Jersey Pinelands a unique place.
