With A Historic Village And Over 14 Miles Of Trails, This Underrated New Jersey State Park Is A Must-Visit

New Jersey has no shortage of beautiful state parks to visit, but some of them can fly under the radar a little bit. Allamuchy Mountain State Park, located in Allamuchy and Byram Townships, is one such example. The park has over 14 miles of marked trails and over 20 miles of unmarked trails in a tranquil wooded setting, but that’s not all it offers. Right within the park’s borders, you’ll also find Waterloo Village, a historic 19th-century canal town you can stroll through and imagine you’re stepping back into the past.
