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.
Started from the parking area just above office and took the long way around Swamp (red) trail to its end. Picked up Spring (blue) trail to Summit (yellow) went north to high point, logged it. Walking off the small rise of the summit it punctured my palm nicely on a small Honey Locust thorn. Cool. Looped Summit trail down to State Park Rd. Then back up Blue and Summit back to the other side. Great Hike.
Took the summit trail (yellow - old map says orange, but it's yellow) out and back. Lots of good unobstructed views along the way, especially since the trees are mostly bare - but the real summit is viewless. Lots and lots of wind! GPS app said it was a 2.5 mile hike. Not too strenuous at all, a good one to start out with! Our 6 year old had fun on it.
