Today is officially the last day of summer, but that doesn’t mean the fun has to end.
We’ve taken many a Sunday trip to beautiful places, and our we’re happy to share those with you here on GreatFrumTrips.com!
Check out this great beautiful state park – one of our favorites in NJ with MANY unique features!
Waterfalls abound… not Niagara Falls (but hey, a whole lot closer!)
Very unique feature – islands within the river with picnic tables are great for a picnic barbecue!
Where you ask? Not to far at all…
Hacklebarney State Park in Long Valley, NJ.
(Driving Directions and attraction details below these pictures)
If your kids are aspiring naturalists, there are a myriad of creatures & wildlife to find…
Continuing with your article...
Just don’t mind the bears…
Don’t worry though, the bears are usually very well trained by their parents.
Our kids splashing around the “river“…
…redirecting little waterfalls with rocks
…and jumping down the rocks into the deeper pools.
IMPORTANT TIP: People do fish this stream, so wear crocs or water footwear to avoid stray hooks
The fast-moving ripples make for lots of fun
Follow it up with a picnic or BBQ supper on one of the “islands”
Choose your “bridge” to this island – either a tree trunk or wood planks
