The Best Sledding Hills In New Jersey

If there is one thing that makes winter awesome in New Jersey, it’s going sledding. With the first sign of snow fall comes the never-ending question from the four foot and under crowd,“When can we go sledding?”

Your biggest question, however, is, “WHERE are we going sledding?”


My favorite way to find the best sledding hills New Jersey has to offer? Through other moms!  NJ Mom asked our readers where their favorite sledding hills could be found. For many of our moms, these are locations they have been enjoying since their own childhoods.
