Which hiking trails in New Jersey are best in the fall?

The hiking trails in New Jersey that are best in the fall are both fun and beautiful. Here are a few to try the next time you want to get outside in the crisp, cool autumn air:

  • High Point State Park, Sussex: Why focus on just one great fall hike when you can visit a state park that has many? High Point State Park offers some of the most beautiful trails year-round, but they're especially lovely when surrounded by fall foliage.
