Park
“South Mountain Reservation covers 2,112 acres in the central section of Essex County, extending through the municipalities of West Orange, Maplewood, and Millburn, bordering South Orange, between the first and second ridges of the Watchung Mountain Range. The presence of the early Lenape Indians lingers in the name given to the Watchung—the "high hills." The reservation has changed only slightly through the years. It's been preserved primarily in its wild state. Woodlands abound in a variety of hardwood trees, and tall hemlocks tower above streams, creeks and ponds”

“This area has a lot to offer overall, Alice's is one of three good restaurants on the lake here. It has the highest view of Lake Hopatcong out of the other restaurants and is a little more upscale but still very delicious and perfect for a date night.”
