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.
