  • Overview

    Eagle Rock Reservation is a 408-acre tract of wooded land located in the central section of Essex County on the crest of Watchung's First Mountain. The mountain got its name in the early 19th century, when bald eagles were said to nest in the rocky cliffs on the eastern edge. The reservation is primarily undeveloped and is laced with bridle paths and hiking trails. Lookout Point provides visitors with a spectacular view of the New York skyline Two key features are the "Old Casino" located at the edge of the cliff, now converted into the Highlawn Pavilion restaurant, noted for its excellent cuisine and spectacular view. And the Sept. 11, 2001, Memorial, a sculpture and plaza that commemorates the location where hundreds viewed the 9/11 tragedy in New York.
