Boulders in the Sourland Mountain Preserve, Ne...Image via WikipediaStrewn with beautiful large boulders and heavily forested, this parkland contains wonderful views if you can make it to the peaks of this small mountain range. According to the Somerset County Park Commision, "The 3,196.7 acre Sourland Mountain Preserve...provides passive recreational opportunities in an undisturbed natural setting...including hiking, mountain biking, bird watching, bouldering, and horseback riding.
It is extremely rich in natural resources, and an area that boasts a variety of stream corridors, geologic outcrops, and an ecological preserve that provides a core habitat for a diversity of plant and animal species. The Sourlands is especially known for its nesting birds on the edges of their breeding areas including Summer Tanager, Winter Wren, and Black-capped and Carolina Chickadees."
