A frequently visited site in the forest, Sunrise Mountain has the second highest peak along the Appalachian Trail in New Jersey. Most trails are lightly used.

The crest of Sunrise Mountain, at more than 1,600 feet, is one of the most frequently visited sites in the 16,000-acre Stokes State Forest.  Young men in the Civilian Conservation Corps constructed the road to the summit as well as a pavilion in the 1930s. They also developed Lake Ocquittunk, Kittle Field, and Shotwell areas, and built the forest's extensive trail system.
