The NJspots is excited to announce our partnership with NYNJTC (New York New Jersey Trail Conference) and a co-hosted meetup on December 2, 2017 at Ramapo Valley Reservation. Bring your hiking […]
This Fall @NJspots is teaming up with our friends over at @VisualDroneArt to co-host a #NJspotsDrone challenge. Drone photographers are invited to share their aerial views and creatives with the community in New Jersey. Below are the guidelines for the challenge.
NJspots will be hosting an Instameet on Saturday September 30th at Palisades Interstate Park. We are meeting at 1pm at the Fort Lee Historic Park parking lot and begin walking at 1:30pm.
One of the favorite spots of our founder, Virginia (@buewho), this trail loop and special place is a cool one to check out. Nestled in the back of the woods along a peaceful river you will come across a unique spot of what was once a mill along the Black River in Chester, New Jersey. This is our #NJspots guide for finding the rock ruins off the Black River Trail in Chester, NJ.
So if you have heard in the last few weeks, we have a significant event happening in the sky on August 21, 2017. We will have a full Solar Eclipse across the nation that can be viewed by millions.
So you’re looking to explore some places, maybe a New Jersey tour road trip or an adventurous journey away from New Jersey. Regardless there are some great tools and apps you can use to help plan your trip and use while you’re traveling. These are some of the apps I constantly use for my travels.
NJspots is a community based around lovers of sunrises, sunsets, blue hours, and the night. So, we’re going to teach you a thing or two you might not have known about New Jersey’s night sky.
Looking for multiple places to explore in New Jersey? We have some you can check out. These locations are great for day trips and exploring all the different areas and landscapes that New Jersey has to offer.
The Hook is also home to the (guess the name?) Sandy Hook lighthouse (right? who would have thought?). There you can sign up for a tour and walk your way to the top of the of it; tours are offered for free every hour from 1:00-4:00 pm, and they DO fill up.
The weather is getting warmer, the sun is staying out longer, and the days are getting more adventurous for those looking to explore New Jersey in the spring and summer. We are always looking for new places to adventure in the Garden State, so we have put together a guide for the best waterfall hikes in New Jersey. Get your car gassed up and get ready to explore!
The highlight of Rutgers Gardens is the Bamboo Forest (yes, they have a bamboo forest). We were immersed by giant sticks of bamboo coming from all directions. It’s pretty easy to get lost and forget that you’re in New Jersey and not the Himalayas.
Tag your furry friends on Instagram this month exploring different places around New Jersey. We want to see where you take them. Be sure to tag #NJspotsPets in your caption for a chance to be part of our contest this month.
So you have seen the dozens of pictures on Instagram, you’ve drooled over the gorgeous panoramic views, and now it’s time for you to conquer hiking Mt. Tammany at the Delaware Water Gap in New Jersey.
A few miles off exit 102 on the Garden State Parkway and you’ll find yourself in a beautiful city filled with iconic landmarks, an attractive beach, shops, inexpensive bars, and some impressive restaurants.
Looking to escape the concrete jungle of the urban areas in New Jersey or even New York City? We have some of our favorite State Parks to visit in the State of New Jersey that are perfect for hiking. We have included some of the recent photos that our community has shared with us at these locations. If you are looking for further information or have any questions, be sure to email us!
