New Jersey Palisades Interstate Park

Overview

On the western shore of the Hudson River in northeastern New Jersey, we are part of more than 100,000 acres of parks and historic sites that the Palisades Interstate Park Commission manages for New York and New Jersey. The two states formed the Commission in 1900 to stop the destruction of the Palisades by stone quarries, which were blasting the famous cliffs for crushed stone.

The Palisades Interstate Park in New Jersey is about twelve miles long and half a mile wide, containing 2,500 acres of wild Hudson River shorefront, uplands, and cliffs.

Visitors find within this park more than 30 miles of hiking and ski trails, a boat launching ramp, a scenic riverside drive, a cliff-top parkway and overlooks, riverfront picnic areas and playgrounds, a nature sanctuary, two boat basins, historic sites — and mile after mile of rugged woodlands and vistas just minutes from midtown Manhattan.

The Palisades Interstate Park is a National Historic Landmark. The Palisades Cliffs are a National Natural Landmark.

The Long Path and Shore Trail are National Recreation Trails.
