Jennings Mountain is one of New Jersey's better, yet less known, high peaks.
Jennings Mountain's top is a long, narrow north-south ridge with excellent views to the east and limited views to the west. The mountain is little tracked, and has no atv trails, litter, or official hiking trails on it.
Jennings' eastern face is very steep, with two parallel cliffs, but the summit is flat, open, and grassy. The bases of Jennings on the west, south, and east are very beautiful mountain streams.
With no trails leading to the top, aspiring NJ 1Kers will find Jennings Mountain to be a mountain of peace and solitude.

Ugh, one of those peaks you'd only do if it's on a list of some sort. There was at least a nice view part-way up, but mostly just a grinder of a climb that fortunately wasn't super long.
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.
