The Blue Trail at High Point State Park in Sussex, New Jersey is an easy 0.4 mile out-and-back trail that leads from the AT parking area to the Iris Trail at the park.

Follow the blue blazes for 0.2 miles to the White-blaze and red-dot Iris Trail. The park labels this parking area as parking for the Appalachian Trail, but you need to hike for at least 0.5 miles to reach the AT from this lot. To get to the AT from this lot, take a right-hand turn on the Iris Trail and hike for an additional 0.2 to 0.3 miles or so where the next trail junction is the AT.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
