I parked along the side of East Shore Road, then crossed the bridge over the Wanaque River to a woods road running along the southeast side of the base of the mountain. I then bushwhacked up the southeast side of the mountain. It was very steep but was short. Along the way up I found a pretty good viewpoint looking east towards Big Beach Mountain and south towards the Stonetown Circular Trail area (Windbeam Mountain). I didn't find any views from the summit. Near a cairn, there is a large boulder which seems to be the highest point. I descended the north side of the mountain which was much more gradual and then headed along to Big Beach Mountain on trails. I saw three ATVers on the woods road on the northeast side of the mountain.

Practiced social distancing more than I planned to today. My two mile plan ended up being five.
Started at trailhead on Mountain Lake road. Followed trail and ATV paths along col until I decided it was time to head uphill. Not too bad a walk. Wandered around the top a while and found a cairn to which I added another rock. Coming back, I decided to follow an ATV trail headed toward the col. I wasn't paying attention to the map and ended up on Hope-Bridgeville Road (Rte 519) on the wrong side of the mountain! Whoops! I could have walked back up and over the hill but decided to walk along the road back to the trailhead - about 3 1/2 miles. Added to my file of Lessons Learned.
Climbed up the north side of the hill along the gas line and bushwhacked down the south side. Decent view southwest towards Ilgenstein Rock.
I should have used Steve Welgoss' directions!
I parked at a pull-off on Axford Avenue, just north of the stream and started bushwacking from there. I crossed several ATV trails, but they always seemed to be heading in the wrong directions. But the multi-flora rose and barberry wasn't bad on the way up. Found a rockpile at the summit and added a few addition stones. On the way down, I found an ATV trail that took me back to Axford Avenue. Overall, it was less than two miles round trip. Not much of a view from the top. Not a difficult walk.
I did the same hike as Peter D. Like him, I lost the ATV at the top of the first ridge but was able to find another when descending from the summit. Lots of trash on the south side of Hasenclever Hill. The trail goes by Jehovah's Witnesses World Headquarters at the south end of Blue Lake. It pretty impressive and looks like a modern resort-conference center but not a soul in sight!
What a gorgeous walk! Will definitely be back to do this again!
Did and out-and-back from the Stone Town Recreation Center following the Red Trail. A good climb but nothing scary. A warm Sunday afternoon in March and lots of people were on the trail. Best views were on Little Windbeam and the hill just north of it. Windbeam itself was flat and forested at the top. There was what appeared to be a glacial erratic at the summit. I place a coupled more rocks on top.
