This classic glacial tarn is located near Passaic County’s highest elevations, with views of the Manhattan skyline on clear days. Warren County, is New Jersey’s best-known glacial tarn. (Tarn, from an Old Norse word for pond, refers to those bodies of water left behind by melting glaciers and usually found in isolated mountain regions.) But Terrace Pond is more accessible and more frequently visited than Sunset Pond. You reach this trailhead by following Clinton Road, legendary for its rumors of strange and spooky occurrences, through City of Newark watershed land.
