At the end of April my husband and I went to Delaware Water Gap to see Buttermilk Falls and go for a hike around Crater Lake. This was easily my favorite hike since we moved to New Jersey, with a variety of beautiful scenery.
The 11-mile Stony Lake/Sunrise Mountain Loop in Stokes State Forest was a wonderfully refreshing hike with a variety of nature and some sweeping views.
Splitrock Reservoir is about an hour drive from Jersey City if you don’t get caught in traffic. The loop around the reservoir, which looks like a lake, is about 11 miles long.
