Jenny Jump Mountain 1

Jenny Jump Mountain #1 is one of several New Jersey high peaks along the Jenny Jump Ridge. The ridge got its name from a colonial-era legend. A girl named Jenny and her father were picking berries in the area when Lenape Indians ambushed them. In order to save Jenny, her father shouted "Jump, Jenny, jump!" and Jenny jumped to her death off a cliff.
