'50 Hikes in New Jersey' Guidebook Updated for 2020
50 Hikes in New Jersey. Book by Daniel Chazin.


A revised 5th edition of 50 Hikes in New Jersey, written by Trail Conference volunteer Daniel Chazin, is now available to help you discover outstanding hiking destinations throughout the Garden State!

While New Jersey may be known more for its urban areas than its green spaces, the state is actually a crossroads for major long-distance trails including the Appalachian Trail, Highlands Trail, and Delaware and Raritan Canal State Park Trail. The 50 routes described in this guidebook range from 1.5 to 12 miles in length, making it ideal for a range of users from families out for a nature walk to adventurous hikers up for a challenge. The roster of hikes covers the entirety of the state, from the Kittatinnies to Cape May County. 

This latest edition includes three completely new hikes: Blue Mountain Loop Trail in Stokes State Forest, Ramapo Valley County Reservation, and Dismal Harmony Natural Area. In addition, many other hikes have been significantly revised and updated, and many new photos have been included. Each hike is accompanied by driving directions, trailhead information, difficulty ratings, detailed maps with elevation profiles, and color photos to highlight special views and features.
