Mount Mitchill Scenic Overlook reviews
I love driving down to this area of New Jersey. The views from Mt. Mitchill Overlook are simply beyond description but fair to say they are beautiful and work a look. Nice well kept benches and... more »
Mount Mitchell is a very peaceful park. Very clean and great views of NYC and Sandy Hook. Close parking and a beautiful 9-11 memorial more »
Spectacular views of the water with tons of boats going by, and NYC skyline in background. Several benches to sit on and a few binoculars (had to pay to use!). There was also a nice 9/11 Memorial and a playground. Only thing I didn't like was that there were sprinklers blocking paths and getting me wet as I tried to walk to the Memorial. Really liked that there is a water fountain and port-a-potty here.
What a spectacular view of sandy hook, Manhattan, long island to name a few. Very well maintained, the center piece of the park is a statue of an eagle, with benches surrounding it , very nice job. There are 7 Corvette of various colors, including a sting ray. Interesting.
