Blue Mountain is a peak of the Kittatinny Mountains in Sussex County, New Jersey, United States. The mountain is 1,420 feet (433 m) in height. It lies along the Appalachian Trail in Stokes State Forest, overlooking Quick's Pond to the south, and Mecca Lake to the southeast.[citation needed]

History[edit]

Blue Mountain was formerly the name for the entire Kittatinny Mountains. In New Jersey it is now generally restricted to this peak alone, however the Pennsylvania portion of the range is still known as Blue Mountain. The Lawrence Line, dividing East Jersey and West Jersey, crosses the mountain at this point.[citation needed]
