Nestled in Northwest New Jersey, Sussex, Warren and Hunterdon Counties boast some of the best wildlife watching in the state. Bordered by the Delaware River to the West and New York State to the North, the region offers astounding vistas from atop the Kittatinny Ridge, botanical jewels found only a few places in the world, glacial mountain lakes, recreational reservoirs, limestone valleys, gorgeous grasslands, along with numerous pristine rivers including the Musconetcong, sections of which are under consideration for National Wild and Scenic Rivers designation by the National Park Service.
We have created twelve driving tours in the region. Click below on the map trail names or trail links to open a detailed map for each tour. The wildlife-viewing destinations on the tours are marked with numbers in a square. When you click on a number, or on the list of destinations below each map, you will open a page containing detailed directions and site information for that destination. Detailed directions on the tour pages will guide you from one site to the next (not from a central location or a nearby road).
