Pet Friendly Sunrise Mountain
The parking lot at Sunrise Mountain is closed from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Overnight parking is not permitted at this parking lot. The crest of Sunrise Mountain is one of the most frequently visited sites in Stokes State Forest. The mountaintop provides a breathtaking view at an elevation of 1,653 feet above sea level. The thin soil and harsh climate characteristic of Sunrise Mountain is a difficult environment in which few plants can survive. Mountain laurel, wild blueberry, pitch pine and scrub oak are among the natural vegetation found throughout the area. The pavilion at the summit was built in the late 1930s by the Civilian Conservation Corps. The Appalachian Trail runs along the ridge.
Pet Friendly High Point State Park
High Point State Park is dog-friendly. This stunning park encapsulates all the beauty that New Jersey has to offer. The view from High Point Monument, the main attraction of the park, is a spectacular panorama of rich farmland and forest. You and your pooch can enjoy the views of soft hills and lush valleys in three states. The blue line of the Delaware River divides the verdant ridges of New Jersey from those of Pennsylvania. High Point offers superb trails for hikers and skiers and quiet spots for campers and anglers. The park is open every day of the week, April 1 through October 31 from 8:00am to 8:00pm and November 1 through March 31 from 8:00am to 4:30pm.
Pet Friendly Cedar Swamp Trail
The Cedar Swamp Trail is pet-friendly. You can enjoy this one and a half mile loop around a bog within High Point State Park. The swamps views are well worth a visit, especially as you can jump on a section of the AT while you're there. Dog owners are reminded to clean up any mess that their pooches leave behind to preserve the cleanliness of the park.
Pet Friendly Odgen Mine Railroad Path
The Odgen Mine Railroad Path is one of 1600 rail-trails supported by Rails-to-Trails Conservancy, a nonprofit organization that is working to create a nationwide network of trails from former rail lines and connecting corridors. Previously an unused railroad corridor, this "rail-trail" is now a great place to walk Fido in Lake Hopatcong! The map below shows a parking area with convenient access to the Odgen Mine Railroad Path. Rails-to-Trails Conservancy has generously provided map data for this trail to Bring Fido for informational purposes only.
