The Ramapo Mountains are a forested chain of the Appalachian Mountains in northeastern New Jersey and southeastern New York in the United States. They range in height from 900 ft to 1,200 feet (270–370 meters).

A number of parks and forest preserves encompass parts of the Ramapos, including Harriman State Park, the Ramapo Valley County Reservation, Ramapo Mountain State Forest, Bear Mountain State Park, and Kakiat County Park. There are many hiking trails, including sections of the Appalachian Trail. The Appalachian Trail is maintained and updated in the Ramapo Mountains by the New York–New Jersey Trail Conference.
