So far I have only done the metal detecting in my yard. Thanks for the heads up about a permit though!Sarra, you may need to get a permit to hunt the bike path with a metal detector. Is the path an Ocean County park? If so, I would give the park system a call for a free permit, unless the policy has changed. State and federal land metal detecting is a no-no too. Definitely check first!
-Metal detecting may not be a problem, but the digging may be... go figure.
