In 1960, the Park Commission opened the Tourne County Park, on which the Great Boonton Tract used to lie. This park not only features 565.56 acres (7.7 miles of trails), but also it features a beautiful panoramic view of the New York City skyline, of which the park was originally named (“Tourne” is a Dutch word for “lookout” and “mountain”). This walk is perfect for all seasons with hiking, fishing, horseback riding, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and sledding all available. Furthermore, when walking, one can see protected zones for native wildflowers and trees or even enjoy a picnic at the picnic tables on the top of the mountain. This is a great hike for a sunny day family activity. If you don’t want to hike the whole mountain, there are 9 trails to choose from which could be located here.
