At the request of the Morris County Park Commission, the Highlands Trail has been rerouted south and east of Weldon Road in Mahlon Dickerson County Reservation. The 2-mile section of the Highlands Trail from Saffin Pond to its intersection with the Yellow Trail south of the Headley Overlook has been closed, and the Highlands Trail now follows the route of the Yellow Trail from near Saffin Pond to just south of the Headley Overlook, thus shortening the route of the Highlands Trail by about one mile. This map shows the reroute.
Additionally, the Beaver Brook Trail has been extended to the Blue Trail.
A full map of the updated trail network can be found here.
