The Easy Trail In New Jersey That Will Take You To The Top Of The World

New Jersey has a wide range of spectacular hiking trails but only a handful will take you to the highest point in the state. Some span nearly 8 miles while others are a bit easier. Today, we’re featuring a shorter, scenic hike in Sussex County that will have you feeling like you’re on top of the world.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

This hike (either to the platform or monument) is pleasant and perfect for spring and summer days. You might want to head back for fall foliage, too. The views will take your breath away! If you don’t want to hike at all, you can also drive right up to the monument…no judgement! However, I’d hike. To discover another incredible Appalachian Trail journey in New Jersey, click here.
