You spend a lot of your time in the car going to work, the store, and visiting family and friends. Why not take a scenic drive this fall and enjoy some time in the car and sights around the state? While this fall may not be the most colorful, these drives still offer some pleasant scenery.
Here is a list of the best places to see fall leaves in New Jersey and some of our favorite drives:
- High Point State Park, Sussex – At 1,803 feet above sea level, you can’t beat the view! Pack a picnic or take a hike through one of the many trails offered at the park! One trail will even take you through mountain ridge tops with complete 360 degree views!
- Crystal Springs Resort, Hamburg– Through the end of November, visit the resort and take advantage of the local activities including apple and pumpkin picking, local winery tours, horseback riding, hikes, archery, fishing and of course visiting the best spots for “leaf peeping.”
- Old Mine Road, Hardwick Township – Visiting an area on the National Register of Historic Places on your bucket list? Check out one of the oldest roads in the United States. Old Mine Road runs 104 miles. Summon your inner history buff and check out Revolutionary War and Civil War cemeteries, ruins of old copper mines and the beautiful forested hills.
- Hudson River Fall Foliage Cruise, Highlands – Why drive when you can sail? Every Saturday and Sunday through the middle of November, hop on one of Seastreak’s state of the art catamarans and enjoy the changing fall leaves as you cruise down the Hudson River. Take advantage of the opportunity to explore one of two stops in Cold Spring or Newburgh, New York.
No matter where your travels take you this fall, enjoy the ride and always Get Home Safe!
