Mahlon Dickerson Reservation Professional Review and Guide

"Sample the New Jersey Highlands with a loop past Morris County’s highest point and a nice variety of terrain. If any of the state’s 21 counties could come close to an idealized vision of New Jersey, it would be Morris.

East of Interstate 287, it consists of nice, leafy suburbs with ample commuter rail service. Morristown, the county seat, is resplendent with colonial charm and Revolutionary War history. West of 287, the land opens up to the bucolic charm of its horse country southwest and the rugged Highlands terrain in the northwest. But what Morris lacks in that region are the large state parks and forests that its neighbors in the north and west have in great, sprawling abundance. The county itself has made up the difference, though, with its own park system rivaling what the state offers."
