The park is at a great height in the mountains. We went there on July 4th and saw fireworks happening in many parts of NJ state. Though from far but it was an awesome experience.

This is a small park, but there is an amazing view from the first row of mountains that divide north from central New Jersey. On a clear day you can also see Manhattan.

Not much else. See the view Washington had. Go on clear day. Then go have lunch or bring one. Not much here but cool nonetheless.
