Used parking area off Axford Rd (parking for Wildlife Management Area). Hiked total of 3 miles round-trip for loop first up County House Mountain, then to Oxford Mountain, and then back to parking area. Thorns and brush wasn't too bad. Third of five peaks for the day.
I was not going to do this peak as I was getting short on time--perhaps that's what made it easy. i approached from the north and west. i had followed a woods road to the County house and returned to the fork in the road. I took the second fork (the one headed south) to get close to Oxford. It was pretty decent. Same nettles as in County house but it is July so tis the season.

Description: Bagged Mount Fairway, Oxford Mountain, County House Mountain, and Upper Pohatcong Mountain while hiking and geocaching across 10.7 miles Pequest & Rockport WMAs. Quite thorny and overgrown on the way to this summit. Picked up an old faint woods road and lost it in a few spots along the way. Nearly stepped on a box turtle as he was already hiding in its shell. Picked the little guy up, looked at him, and placed him off the path. Lots of hunting stands on the way to this one.
