Apple Pie Hill (also known as Petty Coat Pile) is a hill in Tabernacle Township, Burlington County, New Jersey, United States. It is 205 feet (62 m) tall, making it one of the highest points of the New Jersey Pine Barrens. A 60-foot-tall (18 m) fire tower stands atop the summit, offering views of the surrounding Pine Barrens. The skylines of Atlantic City and Philadelphia are visible from the top of the tower. It lies along the Batona Trail in Wharton State Forest, making it a popular hiking destination.
On September 10, 2016, due to vandalism, the Department of Environmental Protection closed Apple Pie Hill to public access by erecting a fence around the tower. However, the tower is open to visitors when staff members are present and by appointment.
