Parked along East Shore Rd across from trail-head with bridge over Wanaque River. It was a total of two miles round trip, mostly bushwacking, up and down Jennings Mountain
This was seventh peak of the day. Had hiked to Hasenclever Hill earlier and Mountain Defiance / Bald Mountain / Drag Hill / Rocky Mountain / Ilgenstein Rock before that.
Parked off of east shore drive---followed orange dotted woods road north till it ended ..short bushwhack eastward led to a woods road that took be to 0.22 miles from summit--ease 180 ft climb from their up exposed bedrock to carrin.. Wonderful hike.
Great steep ascent (no trail to the top). made this mountain really fun to scramble up. There are a number of false summits that make for good places to catch your breath and get some good views of the surrounding highlands. The summit had some nice views as well.
We climbed (nearly) straight to the top from the bridge that passes over the river. We then walked for a bit on the ridge and came down near a beautiful wetlands area (a pond when we saw it). We took the Jennings Hollow Trail (yellow blaze) back along the base and eventually along the rive/brook to the bridge.
