Park
“We highly recommend the park and especially the bike and walking trails. A great place to bike, hike and more! Located close to us at: 142-170 Goodale Rd, Newton, NJ 07860 which is only a 10-minute drive! The Kittatinny Valley is a relatively flat expanse situated between the Kittatinny Mountains to the west and the Highlands to the east. Two rail trails pass through the valley. Kittatinny Valley State Park Within the Kittatinny Valley State Park are four lakes, extensive wetlands, and limestone ridges. The Aeroflex-Andover Airport, operated by the NJ Forest Fire Service, is also within its boundaries but not open to the public. Scattered throughout are numerous wetlands and open marshes of considerable biological interest. Limestone rock found in the area has created an alkaline soil in which only specially adapted species of plants can grow. Fortunately, many plants have thrived, and these marshes are considered to be places of unusually high natural diversity. Trails Overview: A 3-mile segment of the 20-mile Sussex Branch rail trail passes through the park, in addition to an extensive network of 11 blazed trails within the park. Use the Web Map link on this site to view a trail map. Hunting is NOT permitted on park property between Goodale Road and Limecrest Road. Click to read a detailed description of a hike in the park. Also administered by Kittatinny Valley State Park are the 27-mile Paulinskill Valley rail trail (friends group: Paulinskill Valley Trail Committee), and the Mount Paul Wildlife Management Area (click for a trail map) with 10 blazed trails totaling 10 miles, located north of Mahlon Dickerson Reservation.”
