Hill & Dale Preserve
About the Preserve
The Hill & Dale Preserve provides magnificent and sweeping views of preserved farmland and distant mountains. From the highest point, look eastward to the Watchung Mountains, or westward to the Round Valley Reservoir and Cushetunk Mountain.
Headwater springs within the woods and fields provide water to the pristine trout producing Rockaway Creek that runs along the Preserve.
Come explore the Preserve’s forests and fields to see Cooper’s Hawk, Wood Thrush, Veery and Brown Thrasher. The preserve is also home to bobcat, fox, and black bear.
The Preserve is farmed by a local family that has grown grains and hay on these lands for over 50 years.
