Musconetcong River Valley Watershed
The 157.6 square mile Musconetcong River Valley Watershed lies within the Highlands physiographic province of New Jersey. The Highlands provides the water supply source for the state's major urban areas and the river's recreational and historic resources are important to the local economy. The Musconetcong River Valley features an outstanding diversity of farms, hamlets and villages and secluded natural areas. State, county and local parklands within the river corridor provide significant opportunities for hiking, fishing, canoeing, camping, nature study and other outdoor activities. The Musconetcong River and its tributaries support wild trout populations and are regionally important trout fishing streams. This river corridor has been a priority for the Green Acres program of New Jersey for the last decade, with a specific goal of creating a greenway along the river.
