The Little-Known Ruins In New Jersey You Can Reach By Hiking This 4-Mile Trail

One of the best parts about hiking is getting to encounter something new — whether it be a beach, a waterfall, or a ruin you’ve never seen before. That’s why we love hiking in Wharton State Forest in New Jersey. The area is littered with abandoned towns and ruins, and there are so many cool and interesting hikes that bring you past these sights. One in particular we enjoy is Harrisville Pond.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

Oh, and if you want to bring a canine companion, feel free! They’ll love the trail, too. Just make sure you keep them on a leash.
