NJ Trail Maps for parks and trails in the New Jersey region.

We’ve either linked to the park’s map file or scanned the park map in from our collection if it wasn’t available online. Trails change often, if we have an outdated map, let us know.

Excellent NJ trail maps are also published by the NY-NJ Trail Conference which cover the majority of Northern NJ and NY trails.

They are detailed topographic maps with trails and parking areas clearly marked on them (example shown in the photo above), and are waterproof and tear resistant.

We use them extensively and consider them “must-haves” if you are doing anything more than a casual hike.

Good choices to start out with are North Jersey Trails or the Jersey Highlands Trails map set for a majority of the hikes in north part of the state.

Get Kittatinny Trails for northwest NJ for Mt. Tammany and Sunfish Pond in the Delaware Water Gap, the Appalachian Trail and on up to High Point State Park.
