Started from the upper parking area along the Warwick Tpk. After putting on some layers I stepped out in to a virtual blizzard. Took the blue blazed trail down across the bridge over Green Brook and then began the climb up over the snowed covered rocks to the junction with the white blazed Bearfort Ridge trail. Took the trail north climbing upwards into worsening conditions. Followed the trail to its junction with the yellow balzed Ernest Walter trail at which point a gust of wind put me down. Headed west along the yellow balzed trail to the point where it turns sharply north. Then south along the ridge to the true high point, continued till I arrived at the second bump on the ridge. Turned around at this point. My tracks from the walk in where snowed in. Headed back the same way once I arrived back at the yellow balzed trail.Driving thur West Milford noticed the tempature was 12 degrees on a sign. Burrrrrr great hike on a very snowy day in far north jersey.
