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 independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
