With Dave Hall. Take an early spring hike through meadows and woods while looking for spring migrants. As the snow begins to melt and the amount of sunlight increases, migrant birds get the signal to return to New Jersey to fuel up or stay and breed. This reservation offers exceptional forest edge and meadow habitats for spring migrants. The Hilltop Reservation is a nature preserve located on the Second Watchung Mountain. It is composed of lands formerly included in the grounds of the Essex County Hospital Center. The land was designated a Conservation Easement in 2001, by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, permanently dedicating it for conservation and recreation purposes, and thereby protecting it from any future development.
