Geocache Description:


The Tourne is the only remaining undeveloped fragment of the Great Boonton Tract, purchased by David Ogden, Colonial Attorney-General of New Jersey in 1759. McCaffrey Lane, which serves as the main entrance to the park, was created in 1767 by Samuel Ogden to haul iron ore from Hibernia's mines to his iron works in Old Boonton. Within this historic region, cannon balls were manufactured for use by the Continental Army during the American Revolution.

The land currently known as Tourne Park had been popular for hiking and informal picnicking before it became part of the county system. Originally 226 acres, it currently embraces 546.9 acres, including a wildflower trail with nearly 250 species of native plants. The highlight of a trip to Tourne Park continues to be the view from the top.
