Trail Notes

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. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time into mapping and writing about new trails to publish each month.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
