Skyline Preserve

103 Acres
West Milford

Passaic County


New Jersey Hiking Trail New Jersey Birding Area

This rugged, mountainous property in the heart of the New Jersey Highlands in Passaic County is a link in the preserved greenway between Norvin Green State Forest to the east and protected Newark Watershed lands to the west.

Located on the south side of Weaver Road, the Skyline Preserve is open to explore on your own. (For visitors wishing to hike on maintained blazed trails, please visit the nearby Apshawa Preserve.)

The overlook at a location known as Table Rock offers a scenic vista of the New York City skyline. The preserve’s forest is a sanctuary for birds and other wildlife.

Hikers can park in a small roadside pull-off on the north side of Weaver Road, a short distance to the west of the preserve. The entrance for the Skyline Preserve is marked by a diamond-shaped sign.
