Hike To A Hidden Cave, Then Dine At A Historic New Jersey Restaurant On This Cave-Themed Day Trip

New Jersey isn’t usually known for its caves, with neighboring states having the bigger caverns – but that just means that the caves New Jersey does have are all the more unique, and less likely to be crowded. You can find a unique cave adventure in New Jersey in the northern town of Phillipsburg, and it’s all the more stunning in the winter. All you have to do is take an easy 1.9-mile trail in the Marble Hill Natural Area – the perfect way to work up an appetite on a frosty winter day. The good news is, you’re only a few minutes from the Brass Rail Restaurant & Bar, a historic and rustic Phillipsburg restaurant that makes the perfect finish to a day of exploring. Combining these two will give you one of the most memorable day trips in the north Jersey area.
