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.

Quick hike for you soul

Found no ticks during July. Makes for a great, slow hike or cool run!

This is a easy, level trail that surrounds Sawmill Lake. It passes a number of primitive campsites and has views of the lake. It's about a mile around and would be good for kids or just to get out and stretch you legs. The lake would also be a good place to take kids bluegill fishing.

Blue dot was a fun climb and decent. The AT and Iris were mainly plain sailing. All three trails were very rocky, however, so prepare to have your feet and ankles banged up a little. But it's worth it for some beautiful vistas.

Fun but moderately trafficked trail that leads to the monument. Some parts of trail are rocky and steep, but take your time and it's a breeze.

Gets a little rocking so make sure you wear good hiking books

Trail was mostly flat with peaceful views. I enjoyed the boardwalk. Just watch out for ticks. I removed about 4 of them.
