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 (see Points of interest, below), and there are many hiking trails in the Ramapos, including sections of the Appalachian Trail, which is maintained and updated in the Ramapo Mountains by the New York–New Jersey Trail Conference.
