High Point State Park—Steeny Kill Lake and Sawmill Pond Professional Review and Guide

"Enjoy raptors, mountain bog and marsh plants, and miles of forested mountains surrounding these remote lakes in the highest elevations in New Jersey. On the drive along Route 23 to High Point State Park in the extreme northwest corner of the state, be prepared for some steep hills in this mountainous area in the Appalachian Ridge and Valley region. As you can guess by the park’s name, you will find within its 15,827 acres the highest elevation in the state, a spot marked by a 220-foot gray stone monument. High Point Mountain rises 1,804 feet above sea level—not much by “real” mountain standards, but it’s ours. High Point Mountain is part of the Appalachian Trail, a continuous footpath that starts at Springer Mountain in Georgia and passes through this park on the way to its northern terminus at Mount Katahdin in Maine—a distance of more than 2,000 miles."
