Park Description:




The 1552-acre Weldon Brook WMA is in the rugged Farny Highlands on the western edge of Mahlon Dickerson Reservation north of Lake Hopatcong.  Like so many WMAs, which permit hunting and fishing, there are few blazed trails, but many woods roads.  Two trails beginning in Mahlon Dickerson Reservation extend into Weldon Brook WMA.
