“spectacular panorama of rich farmland”
The view from High Point Monument, at 1,803 feet above sea level, is a spectacular panorama of rich farmland and forest, soft hills and lush valleys in three states. The blue line of the Delaware River divides the verdant ridges of New Jersey from those of Pennsylvania. High Point offers superb trails for hikers and skiers and quiet spots for campers and anglers. The land for High Point State Park, donated by Colonel Anthony R. and Susie Dryden Kuser, was dedicated as a park in 1923. The pleasant landscaping was designed by the Olmsted Brothers of Boston, a prominent landscape architectural firm of that time. The brothers were the sons of the eminent Frederick Law Olmsted, who designed Central Park.
Incredibly windy but so happy we stopped I felt like we were on too of the world
Breathtaking views! Definitely worth to swing by.
We needed a place to escape the craziness of New York, just for a day.
I didn't expect much from this park at first (the only picture I checked before going was the one of the pond with the monument behind). I was so wrong!
It turns out that High Point is the highest point (no pun) in the New Jersey (according to the boards). You have a 360 view on the whole area, wood, valleys, Ski trails (white things on the pictures), and so forth.
If you don't have much time, there is a parking right next to the Monument. Follow the signs!
