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.

It was a really well marked trail! A bit confusing once you hit the monument though. I would definitely recommend.

Agree with Kshitish's comments. I got way way off trail a few times - the new 15 mile trail needs to be marked better. The first part of the trail I covered was beautiful, there was some evidence of bear activity however. But once that trail hit the road I completely lost track of where I was supposed to go. It also seems strange to me to choose to use blue dots while there is a blue dot Appalachian trail that connects to this. Don't follow my track!
