If there’s one thing that makes winter awesome in New Jersey, it’s going sledding. With the first sign of snowfall comes the never-ending question from the four foot and under crowd,“When can we go sledding?” But your biggest question, however, is, “Where are we going sledding?”
The best way to find the best sledding hills New Jersey has to offer? Through other moms! #NJMOM 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.
Here are 50 of the best sledding hills in New Jersey:
T.J. Hill in Fair Lawn, between HB Milnes Elementary and Thomas Jefferson Middle School on Morlot Ave. What’s cool about this hill is that there’s two. So, you go down the first and there’s a bit of a flat spot and then there’s the next. If you have enough speed you can really fly!” – NJMOM Regina P.
