We only took a short trail. But with the fine weather, lots of snow, kind service (thank you Kim) it was wonderful! The rent of skis is not cheap ~30$ per person including pass.

This is a really nice State park, with interesting views from the top, several easy but interesting hiking trails, a lake with a beach, and, of course, the High Point monument, built to honor NJ war veterans. Worth a visit!!
