If You Live In New Jersey, You Must Visit This Amazing State Park

Palisades Interstate Park is probably New Jersey’s most underrated state park. It’s also technically not a state park, as parts of it are in New York and it is managed by the Palisades Interstate Park Commission. The New Jersey section of the park is about 12 miles long and a half-mile wide, and offers over 30 miles of trails. The Palisades Cliffs are considered a National Historic Landmark, and New Jersey’s portion of these imposing cliffs is quite magical.

The serene setting is in stark contrast to the surrounding area, which I feel only makes the park more magical. Have you ever been to Palisades Interstate Park? What do you enjoy most about the area?
