This area consists of 3,020 acres in the northern portion of the Township. It was purchased under the Green Acres Acquisition Program for passive recreational activities, including fishing, hunting, canoeing, cross-country skiing and hiking along the abandoned right of way of the former Chester Branch of the DL&W Railroad. Morris County’s Patriot’s Path hiking trail crosses through the Black River WMA. This area is heavily used during the hunting season and non-hunters should check with the park office on Route 513 before using this area in the fall and winter.
