Although you’ll be arriving and parking at Allaire Village, explore this historic site after the hike is completed. While hiking, you’ll be passing through lush woods beside tiny streams where ninety-four varieties of wildflowers can be seen. For bird lovers, there’s always the possibility of spotting a blue-winged warbler, a ruby-throated hummingbird, or dozens of other species. As a bonus after the hike you might want to board the Pine Creek Railroad, the first operating steam train exhibit in New Jersey and one of the earliest in the United States. Or you might want to camp to enjoy another day here. The fifty-five tent and trailer sites and the two yurts in this state park are spacious and shaded—perfect for overnight or a weekend.
