Approached Rocky from the east after bagging Matty Price Hill (not on this list). Simple bushwhack, bushwhacked down the west face. With my son Patrick.
Approached using the trail running along the ridge after bagging Rocky. With my son Patrick.
Approached using gas line right of way. I forgot how nice the immediate summit area is for a snack break. With my son Patrick.
Osio rock and torne mountian..... great views from osio rock.... typical short but rugged
Buck Mountain (Wyanokies)
Good view after the steep acent.... actual summit is crazy dull, trail is overgrown In the scramble part
Bushwack from sterling ridge to hasenclever hill, found 3 distinct view points, one near the summit, looked over the IBM complex to the east, black rock on the ny side, huge viewpoint, one of the better ones.... then a 3rd .2 miles from blackrock.... very similar but smaller........
On the way to big beech the trip fell apart, dog decided to chase a deer, draged me into a swamp, lost map, and compus in one shot..... (no luck finding it) bailed on big beach to avoid being hopelessly lost, kept sterling ridge to my left and followed the valley to a woods road that was the one I started on..... back to blue lake safe and sound....
Keep a strong head on your shoulder, don't panic, and use basic knowledge........ also respect the woods in nj...... the hills May not be big..... but they still can get you..... and they tend to be scrappy
Camera/ phone also lost (new York side,near the swamp by big beech mountian), if anyone does find it, I would like the memory card back, (rest is insured, but I can't get my photos back)- find me on Facebook Thomas j stabler if found
