The Appalachian Trail passes through Worthington to Stokes State Forest and High Point State Park. One of the earliest roads in the region – the Old Mine Road – skirts the forest along the Delaware River. The road was used for transporting copper and slate from the mines and quarries in the area, and is believed to have originally been a well-defined Indian trail. The trail was also used by fur traders and Dutch settlers.
