Region map

The New Jersey Highlands, roughly defined by a line drawn southwest from Mahwah to Lambertville, contain much of the state's most beautiful scenery. Many of the state's parks and forests are here, as are two national wildlife refuges, Wallkill Valley and Great Swamp, the latter saved from development as an airport in the 1960s and now a prime location near the state's urban centers to spot birds, foxes, deer and other wildlife. Mountain-rimmed lakes with names like Swartswood, Wawayanda and Hopatcong beckon the vacationer. At Morristown, the nation's first military park commemorates the Revolutionary soldiers who twice wintered here. The Delaware and Musconetcong Rivers have been placed on the list of federal Wild and Scenic Rivers. Two excursion railroads offer a trip back in time and one can climb the World War I monument atop High Point, New Jersey's highest elevation. It's an area of small towns, farms, sparkling lakes and green forests.

Most attractions are linked to their websites. Information given is as accurate as possible, but it is always advisable to check with the facility. The descriptions noted for each attraction are for information only and do not constitute an endorsement.

On most trails, biking, horseback riding and cross-country skiing are also permitted. The mountain's history is recalled in the remains of logging roads, some of which have been incorporated into trails, and rock dividing walls. Habitats are varied and are home to a wide range of wildlife.
