Enjoy Lake Hopatcong
We’ve covered a little bit about Lake Hopatcong State Park in a previous post, but it’s worth mentioning again what great amenities are located so close to the inn. At the time of publishing this post, the state park is open with limited services. Guests can hike, horseback ride, bike, fish, kayak, canoe, or use other watercraft on the water. Make sure to check their site for updates on the reopening of the swimming area, picnic tables, pavilions, and buildings. In the meantime, enjoy the abundant outdoor activities that are available such as hiking the James Leach Boardwalk Trail or the Prospect Point and Liffy Island Trail.
Get Back in the Saddle
One of the best ways to enjoy the natural beauty of Sussex County is by horseback. Make a stop at the Spring Valley Equestrian Center to take a riding lesson that will have you out on the trail enjoying the fresh air, wildlife sightings, and the gorgeous forest along the Paulinskill Valley Trail. It’s the perfect way to reconnect with nature and learn some new skills.
