Jenny Jump State Forest is a 4,466 acre state forest in Warren County, New Jersey. It has rolling terrain with rocky outcroppings and boulders that line the trail. There is evidence that great glaciers once covered the forest. There are panoramic vistas of the Highlands and the Kittatinny Mountains and Valley to the west. You can see the Great Meadows in the east from the top of Jenny Jump Mtn. Jenny Jump State Forest is popular with amateur astrological photographers because there is very little light pollution here.
