Hey everyone, I would like to try a Hike at Hacklebarney State Park in Chester, NJ. Read below which describes the different features of the Park in detail. There are several trails so We can choose when we meet up and have a chance to view the Maps. Directions are also listed below. We can meet at the Main entrance off Hacklebarney Rd. I would also like to add that Dogs are welcome. After the Hike we can have lunch at the Pub, which is across the Street from the Park.

Two tributaries, Rinehart and Trout Brooks, also course their way through this glacial valley, feeding the Black River. Even in the heat of midsummer, the temperature of Black River gorge is cool and refreshing.

    Is this hike appropriate for a beginner hiker?

    Is there anyone from the Denville area that would like to carpool to this hike with me?
