Went to Mt Tammany on this rainy Sunday! Took a few spills over the slippery rocks up but enjoyed the half view from the top. Wish it wasn't raining when I reached the peak but still beautiful to look out over the valley (that I could see)!
Boulder Pine Peak
Still a foot of snow up in West Milly! This was a great hike along the Old Coal Trail in Waywayanda from P7 parking on Clinton Rd near Bearfort Waters and Project Use. I would estimate it was about 3 miles there and back. I was accompanied by my trusty sidekick Nugget the Beagle. He had a blast plowing through some of the deeper snow drifts.
After finishing up across the street at Boulder Pine we stopped by the car for some water and headed out to Terrace Pond. Phone died along the way so I only got pictures on the way there. We were the only ones at Terrace Pond... for a change. Plenty of snow out there for anyone brave enough to make the trek. ??
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.
