List Description

This list is still a work in progress and has not been checked. Many peaks do not yet have a prominence value, but it is likely that most of those do have over 160 feet of clean prominence. Overall, it many people may be surprised at the number and variety of peaks in the Garden State.


Thanks to Eric Koppel of the "New Jersey 1K Club" web site, who provided me with many of these peaks. Also, thanks to Aaron Maizlish of, who did some preliminary research on the most prominent peaks in New Jersey.
