About Abram S. Hewitt State Forest

The 2,000-acre Abram S. Hewitt State Forest encompasses a section of the Bearfort Ridge between Greenwood Lake and Upper Greenwood Lake, north of Warwick Turnpike. Bearfort Ridge, formed of the unusual Schunemunk conglomerate or "puddingstone," is an anomaly in the midst of the Highlands. With its many overlooks, colorful bedrock, and stunted pitch pines, it is one of the most picturesque mountain ridges in all of New Jersey. The challenge: conglomerate is hard and does not erode easily, so all of the trails "climb steeply" in places.

Upon entering the Forest, the Appalachian Trail ascends to Bearfort Ridge.
