    Please welcome Jeremy Klopper as the new representative for the Mine Hill Chapter of JORBA. Jeremy is taking over for Jason Gonsalves. Jason has been the driving force behind all the trails at Dickerson Mine Preserve, none of which would exist without his tireless efforts building and maintaining them. Thank you Jason.

Located in Morris County, Mine Hill Township is best known for former resident and 12th Governor of New Jersey, Mahlon Dickerson. With some of the richest sources of iron ore in the country, the Dickerson Mine supplied much of the iron ore used during the American Revolutionary War.

The previous owners of the property now known as the Dickerson Mine Preserve were actively seeking to develop the property since the 1970s until its purchase by the Township 2006.

The Dickerson Mine Preserve is accessible from Canfield Avenue to the East from Green Road and Frank Street to the West. Parking is provided at the Mine Hill Beach parking lot found at the end of Green Road.
