With the webmaster. We hiked from the AT intersection with 519, up the AT to Long Trail and up to the monument. Being a lovely fall day, there were tourists galore. The monument was open so we went up, though the view is not really better than the summit, and remarkably stuffy and indoors.
The best bit of the hike was walking down around the Cedar Swamp just north of the summit, which was both lovely and mysterious.
I suppose it was fitting to have ended on the highest point of New Jersey, but it's perhaps not the most choice of peaks. I'd maybe have preferred something a bit more rural and hidden, with the sort of quiet lovely views New Jersey has aplenty.
