Fall is in full swing in New Jersey: Here’s where to see the colored leaves or take a hike

New Jersey is in the midst of autumn and the foliage around the state is starting to show it. Experts say these next few weeks are peak fall foliage season in the Garden State.
A new survey suggests that High Point State Park is New Jersey’s top hidden gem for seeing the leaves change color. The survey found 150 spots were noted, including the Delaware Water Gap and Hacklebarney State Park.
This is also the perfect season for hiking and New Jersey has plenty of hiking trails open – and more on the way.
A new project will add almost 50 miles of new hiking trails across Burlington County. The trails will weave through multiple towns, including Moorestown, Mount Laurel and Maple Shade.
The plan is to connect these to a larger circuit of trails that connect New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
