Highlands Trail Overview Intro

The Highlands Trail currently extends approximately 180 miles through New Jersey and New York, from the Delaware River in the south to the Hudson River in the north. An extension through Putnam County, New York is a work in progress.

This scenic trail showcases the natural beauty of the local Highlands Region in New Jersey and New York and connects local communities with the incredible recreational opportunities in their own backyards. The Highlands Trail in New York and New Jersey is built and maintained by partnerships between public land managers, the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference, and people just like you.
