New Jersey’s Ghost Lake Trail Leads To A Magnificent Hidden Oasis

When people hear “Jersey,” they normally picture the Jersey Shore. And while it’s true the beaches here are incredible, New Jersey residents know the state is actually home to some great hiking, too.

There are so many amazing trails to pick from, but one in particular we love is located in Jenny Jump State Forest near Frelinghuysen Township. Not only does New Jersey’s Ghost Lake Trail offer some stunning viewpoints, it also eventually leads you to a hidden oasis.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

Just keep in mind that New Jersey’s Ghost Lake Trail is best used from April until October. If you want to bring your furry friend, we have good news. Dogs are indeed able to use this trail; just remember to keep your pup leashed.

Address: Jenny Jump State Forest, 330 State Park Rd, Hope, NJ 07844, USA
