Welcome back to National Parks and other public lands with T!
Ramapo Valley Reservation is a County Park in Bergen County, New Jersey. It was designated a wilderness area in 1972 with about 700 acres and has since grown to encompass over 4000 acres.
It is a dog-friendly park with a few wide, flat trails and some more challenging ones up to scenic vistas. We are always greeted by the ruins of an old structure when we enter the park, perhaps a far flung outbuilding from the nearby Crocker mansion (recently listed for the mere sum of $39 million.) The park may eventually demolish it since it seems to be used as an after-hours hangout these days.
