With more than two hundred unique photographs, many published here for the first time, Hacklebarney and Voorhees State Parks shows life at the CCC camps, the building of trails and roads by hand, and the repair of forests.

    A Great Place, A Great Historic View

    I once worked on an ad campaign for New Jersey Travel and Tourism that featured the headline, "If you've only seen New Jersey at 55 m.p.h., then you've never really seen it."

    I always think of that headline when I hike Hacklebarney State Park where, in the midst of the megaolopolis, you can find peace in the sound of gentle falls at the confluence of the Black and Pohatcong rivers and enjoy a good hike at any level of fitness or experience.

    The book provides a historic view of the parks and their development and is a great gift for any New Jersey or Northeastern outdoorsperson and hiker and anyone local to Long Valley, Chester, Hackettstown, Mendham or that part of Morris County.
