The view from High Point Monument, at 1,803 feet above sea level, is a spectacular panorama of rich farmland and forest, 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 land for High Point State Park, donated by Colonel Anthony R. and Susie Dryden Kuser, was dedicated as a park in 1923. The pleasant landscaping was designed by the Olmsted Brothers of Boston, a prominent landscape architectural firm of that time. The brothers were the sons of the eminent Frederick Law Olmsted, who designed Central Park.

Fun hike with a group of Boy Scouts. Parking is close to the monument. Can be steep in spots but fairly easy overall.

I had a good hike. It was a bit challenging but it was a fun trail. I did monument trail but there are many more trails to explore.

Good trail great for beginners or dog walkers pretty flat for the most part.

It was great. Definitely need a hiking shoe on to do it. The jagged rocks were killing my feet thru my sneakers & the leaves covering the rocks this time of year left me unable to tell what i was stepping down on. Great weather and a great trail w/ beautiful views.

nice hike with plenty of trees and some views

loved this trail..... and so did my dog. Medium level but lots of different scenery. Had a lot of fun on this Trail

This trail has no recent uploads here and the new blue trail is 15 miles long unlike the prior uploaded track.
We got off trail quite a bit and ended up on the Appalachian backbone trail. We ended up doing a in and out instead of a loop due to that and with significantly less miles, just under 13. The terrain is moderately rugged and while the elevation is not something most regular hikers will worry much about, the combination of miles, changes in elevation and the typical northeast rocky terrain under your feet will make you realize the full 15 miles of this beautiful trail. It can get very lonely as it does not appear to be a very popular trail.

Easy not very exciting hike but great views from the monument!

It was a great way to discover nature, trees, rocks and more and more, definitely do some rock balancing!

Great trail, last 1/4 mile is all up hill but do able. Took my wife and 9 year old. It was their first hike and they both enjoyed it.

Great beginner trail, stairs at the end if the loop are a beast but manageable.

Relaxing loop with plenty of opportunity to side step the trail for mountainous overlooks. Dirt trails were well maintained and clearly marked. The occasional slope of rocks and roots made for a nice step workout.
