Palisades Interstate Park

  • Overview

    Overlooking the Hudson River in Bergen County, the Palisades Interstate Park in New Jersey is about 12 miles long, a half-mile wide, and encompasses 2,500 acres of wild Hudson River shorefront, uplands, and cliffs.

    Within this park you will find more than 30 miles of hiking and ski trails, a boat launching ramp, a scenic riverside drive, a cliff-top parkway and overlooks, riverfront picnic areas and playgrounds, a nature sanctuary, two boat basins, historic sites - and mile after mile of rugged woodlands and vistas just minutes from midtown Manhattan.

    The Palisades Interstate Park is a National Historic Landmark and the Palisades are a National Natural Landmark.

    The Long Path and Shore Trail are National Recreation Trails.

    We are part of more than 100,000 acres of parklands and historic sites in New York and New Jersey managed by the Palisades Interstate Park Commission.
