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.
It was a really nice sunny day today, and the hike was not that difficult. The trail was mostly flat with some ups and downs, but it brought us fairly close to the summit.
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.
