The Secret Garden Hike In New Jersey Will Make You Feel Like You’re In A Fairytale

New Jersey is home to dozens of gorgeous gardens. Some are quite popular, including the New Jersey State Botanical Garden At Skylands, Deep Cut Gardens, Presby Memorial Iris Gardens, Greenwood Gardens, and the Leonard J. Buck Garden. I’ve covered each of these incredible spots over the years but I recently came across a hidden gem that I just had to share.
