See the Magical Fairy Trail Hidden in Suburban New Jersey
Get a glimpse of the cottages and doorways of this magical fairy village in New Jersey made by special education teacher Therese Ojibway.
Special education teacher Therese Ojibway, 60, started to transform the trails of the South Mountain Reservation near her Milburn, New Jersey home about five years ago. Read more about her amazing story here. Here, a friendly welcome greets visitors as they begin the trail.

Check out these other secret locations in every state.
Visitors of all sizes
Ojibway's handiwork has attracted visitors big and small to South Mountain Reserve.
A warm invitation
Even the fairies are invited to stay and make their homes in the village. Take a look at these jaw-dropping photos of the world's most beautiful countries.
On this trail, birdhouses are meant for more than just birds.
Over the five years Ojibway has been constructing this trail, more cottages have popped up in the corners of this forest. Did you know about these hidden gems in every state?
Some homes even have little yards, like this one with a pumpkin patch—a picturesque autumn scene.
Along the trail, plenty of little surprises lie hidden in houses, under roots, or inside fallen trees. You probably never knew about these secret chambers hidden inside famous landmarks.
Some additions to the village take some searching to find, like this miniature vanity set.
Signs posted on the trail remind human visitors to be careful around houses—and inhabitants—much smaller than they are. These mountain towns look like a storybook paradise in winter.
A forest reborn
This fallen tree has life again, thanks to the new dwelling embedded in its roots.
