All of the hikes listed in this recent guide have been walked by the author and field checked/reviewed by NYNJ Trail Conference members and Trails Chairs of the NJ Highlands areas where the trails are found. Hiking the Jersey Highlands has more than 300 pages of 35 hikes, each with background info, easy-to-follow detailed directions, and a map. These hikes are sequentially listed by length (mileage), difficulty, and estimated time required. An extensive final section closely covers the Highlands Trail as it travels through New Jersey. The 16-page insert of color wildflower photographs and introductory descriptive chapters on the history, geology, birds and other wildlife that one might encounter, greatly enhance the Highlands hiking experience, especially for hikers who tune into their natural surroundings!
