New signs have been installed at entry points to the Musconetcong Watershed National Water Trail on Lake Hopatcong and Lake Musconetcong. The Musconetcong Watershed National Water Trail is a nationally designated system of water trails created to promote recreational access within the Musconetcong Watershed that includes routes along Lake Hopatcong, Lake Musconetcong, and the Musconetcong River.
National Water Trail signs for the Musconetcong Watershed have been installed at the following locations:
We would like to acknowledge the efforts of the Hopatcong Borough Department of Public Works, Hopatcong State Park, and the Morris County Department of Public Works for their assistance in installing the National Water Trail signs provided by the United States Department of Interior.
A trail brochure offers information on the 11 Musconetcong Watershed National Water Trail trip segments, which provide access for recreation in natural, historic, and agricultural landscapes. Best for kayaks and canoes, conditions range from flat water to advanced white water, in segments 4-12 miles long, or longer when combined.
