NJspots was founded with the notion of sharing the amazing places that New Jersey had that most people didn’t know about. With the intent to avoid the stigmas of the state, NJspots’ mission is to show the beauty and amazing places the New Jersey has to offer. We hope that you can find your spot and share new ones with us. Don’t forget to tag #NJspots.
Go For A Hike – Shade = Cooler Temps!
With there being plenty of types of hikes across the state, New Jersey has a wide variety to choose from no matter what region you’re in. We have collected some of our favorite hiking spots on our map and also have a few guides below that can help you choose what parks to visit in your region.
One of the most visionary components of the New Deal was the Civilian Conservation Corps.; one of the local beneficiaries of this program was Voorhees State Park. In the early 20th century Hill Acres Farm in rural Lebanon Twp. was home to chickens, orchards and fields of wheat, rye and hay.
What most people aren’t aware of are the beautiful grounds surrounding the campus of this institution located just outside Princeton, in Lawrenceville, and the over 2 miles of trails that run alongside Stony Brook.
Get out your hiking shoes (no really — your feet might get wet) and explore the bogs of South Jersey in this nature preserve.
