High Point State Park , N.J.

The result of continental collisions that folded earth's crust, and centuries of ice sheets and erosion, the Kittatinny Ridge that the park is named for is the highest point in the state. Make it to the top for magnificent views, unique flora and a memorial dedicated to New Jersey’s veterans. The 10,000-acre park is also home to the highest elevation swamp of its kind in the world.
