Welcome, all, to the grand opening of the New Jersey 1K Club! Here you will find some of the best resources on the web for climbing New Jersey's 1,000 foot mountains. While New Jersey may not have the tallest or most rugged mountains, the Garden State is home to many summits with breathtaking views that provide unique challenges for the novice hiker, the seasoned peakbagger and everyone else in between.
At the moment, the list is only tentative. Please check back frequently, as the list is subject to change. Also, I'm open to suggestions and corrections, so feel free to contact me.
Mountains that have recently been confirmed to be located on private property are:
- Danville Mountain
- Upper Pohatcong Mountain
- County House Mountain
- Baldpate Mountain
Please note that mountains which have summits on private property are off-limits unless you obtain the necessary permission from the land owner. I'm trying to find out who owns what, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Please contact me if you have any information.
It has been confirmed that the true summit of Schooleys Mountain has been fully developed, therefore the "summit" of Schooleys Mountain has been moved from the true summit to a sub-summit, located in Schooleys Mountain County Park.
Removed from the list is Fox Hill in Hunterdon County. Recent maps show that the summit of Fox Hill is completely developed.
