High Point Professional Review and Guide

"Walk the Appalachian Trail to New Jersey’s highest point and its panoramic views. There is no subtlety in the naming of New Jersey’s highest mountain. Why, it must have been decided, use the name of a former governor or president, an American Indian name, or even the nearest community, when you can just call it what it is: “High Point.” Nothing more, nothing less. It’s even more appropriate when you consider the mountain’s location within the state—almost in the northernmost corner, so it is at the high point of the map of the state as well.

From its summit obelisk, High Point justifies its name quite well. There are 360 degrees of views available of three states."
