The wife and I were taking a road trip up the New Jersey Coast, Asbury Park to Atlantic Highlands. As we were finishing up the drive and ready to head back home, I saw the sign for the Mount Mitchill Scenic Overlook...wow I am glad I didn't overlook this overlook. Scenic overviews of the Sandy Hook Shoreline and distance views... More

This is an outstanding attraction, especially the 9-11 Memorial. The memorial with the eagle and names of those lost from the county is impressive but the most impressive to me was the timeline walk leading up to the statue. Well worth seeing -- and the overall view from which you can see New York's skyline is pretty impressive too.

I was in the area visiting the Twin Lights Historic Site and found this attraction nearby. I figure it was only a few minutes away so I decided to give it a go. The landscaping was beautiful. Excellent views from way high up. The 9/11 memorial is beautiful though. I spent about 10-15 minutes there and thats about it. Don't... More

My family stopped here during a day trip along the Jersey Shore. The park is beautifully maintained and included a very nice tribute to those who lost their lives on 9/11. The views from the overlook are incredible! It is worth the visit.

I am delighted by the view from this scenic overlook, the highest point on the eastern coast! All of NYC is easily seen. A clear day makes the view much more spectacular! There is also a 9/11 memorial honors those who lost their lives on that tragic day. This is definitely a must see!

They say it's the highest spot on the Atlantic coast between Maine and the Yucatan, but don't expect Kilimanjaro: the "summit" is only two hundred and some feet high. Great views of New York, though, and a pleasant little park.

For its size, this park delivers quite an impact. Aside from the stunning views and landscape, the 9/11 memorial is staggeringly impressive. A timeline embedded in the sidewalk leads to a stone monument inscribed with the names of those Monmouth Co citizens lost on that fateful day. You will not need much time to tour this scenic spot, but the... More

A beautiful scenic lookout on the top of New Jersey. Come here to feel and experience the history that has been seen from this historic place. The 911 Memorial is not to be missed, nor is the view.

Nice scenic lookout with lots of good information available about area. Be sure to read up on the monument to the NJ men and women who's lives were lost in 9/11 event. A lot of thought and detail were put in to it that could be easily overlooked if you don't know what to look for.
