Summer in New Jersey
Posted: July 9, 2013
With the summer season upon us, New Jersey’s Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) wants to remind residents of the many events and natural resources available at the state’s parks, forests, historic sites and wildlife management areas.
Last year, New Jersey’s state parks had 19 million visitors. The parks offer opportunities to experience New Jersey’s natural and historic resources firsthand through wildlife management and interpretive centers, hiking trails, lakes, rivers, forests, beaches and historic monuments and battlefields covering 800,000 acres.
The DEP has launched new mobile phone applications and an online camping reservation system to help visitors plan for and make the most out of their trips to these wonderful resources.

Randolph Trail System
Randolph’s trail system runs a 16-mile course traversing five parks, the Clyde Potts Reservoir Watershed and 2,000 acres of pristine open space. The trails link together schools with neighborhoods and connect to Patriots’ Path at Combs Hollow and Old Brookside. The trails can be used from dawn to dusk and are closed at night.
