Pyramid Mountain Natural Historic Area

472 Boonton Ave * Montville * NJ 07045 Dawn to Dusk

Pyramid Mountain’s 1,545 acres of rugged trails, fields, forests and wetlands are a cherished local favorite. Roughly 18,000 years ago, the receding Wisconsin Glacier shaped the unusual glacial erratics found here, like Tripod Rock (a 180-ton boulder balanced on three smaller boulders) and Bear Rock (one of the largest in New Jersey)

This wilderness, virtually untouched for decades, is now a significant wildlife sanctuary. The park’s highest point is 934 feet, with a magnificent view of the New York City skyline.

After an exhilarating hike on the trails, come inside the Pyramid Mountain Visitor Center to experience a variety of interactive educational exhibits about the history and wildlife of the area, including the Lenape Indians and early European settlers, habitats, and how the Wisconsin Glacier shaped the land. Adult and Children programs, and scout and school programs are offered year-round, as well as summer camp. For a calendar of special events, please visit morrisparks.net.
