This is a small park, but there is an amazing view from the first row of mountains that divide north from central New Jersey. On a clear day you can also see Manhattan.

Not much else. See the view Washington had. Go on clear day. Then go have lunch or bring one. Not much here but cool nonetheless.

Nice place to spend the entire evening seeing the greenery of NJ, we can see the new york sky line and dense forest of NJ from this place. We went to this place last weekend and enjoyed our evening in this calm place.

I’ve been visiting Washington Rock for 50 years and the views are still wonderful especially when you imagine what George Washington witnessed at this spot. Other than the lookout spot, some picnic tables and a short hiking trail there isn’t much there. You can spend...More
