Jenny Jump Mountain 1
Started from the parking area just above office and took the long way around Swamp (red) trail to its end. Picked up Spring (blue) trail to Summit (yellow) went north to high point, logged it. Walking off the small rise of the summit it punctured my palm nicely on a small Honey Locust thorn. Cool. Looped Summit trail down to State Park Rd. Then back up Blue and Summit back to the other side. Great Hike.
Jenny Jump Mountain 2
Drove to pull off just north of the Observatory. Hiked up from there. The col between 1 and 2 really is pretty intimidating. I'll go back one day just to ascend from that side.
Jenny Jump Mountain 3
Parked at lot near spring. Entered onto Jenny Jump trail and turned immediately up the hill after the large fallen white oak. Bushwacked the whole thing. Few very steep sections. Also very dense raspberries, Japanese barberry, and multiflora rose. 1 Mile round trip with almost 600' ascent.
Did not feel like fording so took East Shore road to parking area just past Jenning Hollow fire road. Parked and walked back down to cross over bridge so did not have to ford Wanaque River. Took fire road over to where it ran into the yellow Jenning Hollow Trail. Then had to pick route that looked best to whack up to Jenning Mountain Ridge. Many options but choose wisely as is very steep and loose, Picked route that looked like a herd path and it followed the drainage's up. Arrived at the ridge and a cairn but did not look like the true summit. Followed the ridge and ended up at the summit cairn. This is an easy summit to reach but you need to be able to follow a herd path. There are some very steep cliff areas that you do not want to end up in!!!!!! Summit is awesome and is very quiet and peaceful. Jersey has a gem in Jennings Mountain!!!
Took off on the old AT at the mailbox. Was under the impression that the old AT was now a blue blaze and could be followed down to rte 94 and Maple Grange road. I was not looking for true summit of Wawayanda as I always in error, until yesterday, thought true summit was at the mailbox. I followed old blue blazes and white blazes until I arrived at ledges and a gorgeous view. I had a difficult time finding trail as old blazes seemed to disappear. I found faint blazes and what looked like a herd path and followed it. I soon ended up at a stream crossing and new blue blazes that looked fresh. I continued to follow looking for the trail to cut down to 94 and maple Grange but it kept going straight. We checked our app and it showed that the trail we were on was not going to take us down. Again I was not looking for true summit but we started our bushwack down from the highest piece of land around. If we were not on the summit we were close. Do those new blue blazes end at the true summit or at Breakneck road. The bushwhack we did to get down to 94 was crazy. Tons of blow downs, extremely steep and very slippery. I would highly suggest you head back to the old or new AT to go down. We ended up one field over from where the old AT comes out. There was an old falling down barn in the field we ended up in. Once I know where the true summit is I will be back to grab it. Seems not many hit the actual true summit of Wawayanda.
