'Hacklebarney Bench'

website

This bench is located in a peaceful area looking down at the Black river.

The freshwater Black River briskly cuts its way through rocky Hacklebarney State Park, cascading around boulders in the hemlock-lined ravine. Two tributaries, Rinehart and Trout Brooks, also course their way through this glacial valley, feeding the Black River. Even in the heat of midsummer, the temperature of Black River gorge is cool and refreshing.

Today Hacklebarney is a favorite place for avid anglers, hikers and picnickers, yet in the 19th century the park was a mined iron ore site. The gushing river against the grey boulders and dark green hemlocks creates a majestic beauty in any season.

Three rare and endangered plant species exist within the park: American ginseng, leatherwood and Virginia pennywort. Over a hundred bird species and wildlife such as black bear, woodchuck, deer and fox live in the park.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
October 8 Beautiful Park by Anne
Bill and I visited Hacklebarney Park on a warm September day. Loved this beauitiful park and the sound of the rushing water from the Black River. We walked along the paths, climbed the rocks and sat and admired the beautiful surroundings. We will definitely go back in the summer.
September 7 do not feed the bears by jonnyd33

September 6 Awesome!!! by scouter 13 yrs.
I just went there today and my favorite part of it was probably climing all of the rocks and boulders!!!
January 3 Wonderful Winter Hike by Francisco Javier Gonzalez
We live in Maryland, but were in the area visiting relatives. My sister suggested Hacklebarney State Park, and we loved it. It was cold on Monday, December 28, but we enjoyed a nice hike along the length of the white trail, and returning on the red trail. Very quiet, and beautiful streams. It was a big hit with everyone in the family, including the dog. Would love to come back in spring,summer, or fall.
April 26
Very beautiful park. Walking down you start to feel the relaxation setting in. Hiking near the small waterfalls and north is great but can be tricky. Best to wear the hiking boots and leave the sneakers at home.
January 29 My favorite NJ Park by Bill Bannan
A beautiful setting by the Black River. The hiking is wonderful and the sounds of the stream make this park very serene. Hiking along the stream can be difficult, but well worth the challenge.
June 18 One of the Best Parks! by dvicari
Upon entering the park you immediately notice the green lush setting. As you proceed to the parking area you will notice the various plants & trees. Walking the trails can be difficult but worth the effort. Small playgrounds for children can be found while walking through this wonderfully shaded park with a meandering stream. Great Park!
