Everyone In New Jersey Should Take This Underappreciated Scenic Drive

Though the official New Jersey State Parks foliage tracker says that much of the Garden State is seeing “some change” in the leaves, I’ve noticed fairly significant changes in several areas during my daily travels. It was a delightful surprise to see entire swaths of red and gold so early in the season! These changes mean that now is a wonderful time for a colorful scenic drive. We’ve got so many terrific options but one of my absolute favorites has to be Henry Hudson Drive.

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: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

This drive makes for a great day trip since you’ll also be able to park and hike if you choose. If you get hungry, the State Line Cafe is currently open for takeout.  With several wonderful trails, where do you begin? Try this hike to castle ruins or this hike to an enchanting stone monument.
