Bagged mt defiance from botanical gardens. Halifax trail to shore trail. Bushwack up to top.
Bushwhacked again back to white trail to make it a hard loop.
Still cannot find butlers mine. Ugg.
Started in the Ramapo Valley County Reservation parking lot and took the silver trail to the green. Stayed on the green until it intersected with a dirt road (I believe it was the pipeline) and turned left. We stayed on this path for a approx. 1 mile, which led us to the summit area. Overall, a great hike and opportunity to see lots of wildlife (we saw hawks, frogs, deer, and a fox).
