This isolated hike through a remote patch of New Jersey’s Skylands region takes in the state botanical garden and a popular local swimming spot.Sussex County may have the higher hills and mountains, but it is the northern portion of Passaic County that has North Jersey’s wildest lands. The large tracts that protect the watersheds, which provide drinking water to Newark and many other communities in the region, augment most of the state parks and forests in this area.
