Hacklebarney State Park in New Jersey is 978 wooded acres surrounding the Black River. I walked the easy trails here with a photography group, taking pictures of the park’s waterfalls. The trail culminates in a pond where people can swim.

  1. Lovely destination – thank you for reminding me. It is said that Hacklebarney is the coolest (as in temperature) spot in New Jersey. Its densely shaded trails and the softly rippling waters can be most welcome in July and August – and maybe other months now. Appreciatively! cfe

  2. I wanted to thank you for your nice comments on my blog, MywalkinManhattan. I really love Hacklebarney Park. I have been going there since I was four years old. It is really beautiful in both the Spring and the Fall. I hope you had time to stop at the Hacklebarney Cider Mill Farm just outside the park. Their bakery and apple cider are the best and it is a great experience just walking around the family farm.

    1. Thanks! Hope you are getting back out now that our parks have mostly reopened. No, I saw that farm, but we were hungry for real food after hiking. We went to another local place whose name I can’t remember

      1. When you visit the park the next time check out their bakery. They make the best cider doughnuts and fruit turnovers and in the fall they cook hot dogs outside poached in their fresh apple cider. They also have an interesting corn maze. The family who runs the farm is super nice. Check out my review on DiningonaShoeStringinNYC@wordpress.com. Please stay safe in your travels as well. My best!
