Ball Mountain and Roomy Mine Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Starting at the New Jersey Audubon Society’s Weis Ecology Center, this Highlands ramble gives you a sample of the Wanaque Mountains’ scenery and history. The center’s exhibits will whet your appetite for the trail ahead, which includes fine views from Ball Mountain and a visit to two of New Jersey’s most interesting old iron mines, the historic Roomy and Blue Mines.

The New Jersey Audubon’s Weis Ecology Center, our starting
point, is worth a visit and has an interesting history. It started in 1921 as Camp Midvale, operated by the Nature Friends (originally Naturfreunde, of German origin). This politically liberal, social democratic organization provided working-class members with access to the outdoors. It attracted a variety of leftist artists, actors, and other notables over the years."
