c/o Voorhees State Park, 119 Hacklebarney Rd, Long Valley New Jersey 07853
The freshwater Black River briskly cuts its way through rocky Hacklebarney State Park, cascading around boulders in the hemlock-lined ravine. Two tributaries, Rinehart and Trout Brooks, also course their way through this glacial valley, feeding the Black River. Even in the heat of midsummer, the temperature of Black River gorge is cool and refreshing. Today Hacklebarney is a favorite place for avid anglers, hikers and picnickers, yet in the 19th century the park was a mined iron ore site. The gushing river against the grey boulders and dark green hemlocks creates a majestic beauty in any season.
Located in north central New Jersey. Follow Route 206 to Chester, then Routes 24/513 west for one mile to State Park Road for two miles. Turn right onto Hacklebarney Road and travel one-half mile. The entrance is on the left.
