Rocky Mountain

Rocky Mountain

Rocky Mountain is one of the finest trailless summits in the New Jersey Ramapos. A cairn has been constructed at the summit and prospective 1K'ers are encouraged to contribute one rock to it. The actual summit of Rocky Mountain does not have much of a view but a few steps Southeast of the summit reveals a slab of rock with Eastward views of North Jersey and Manhattan.

The photograph above was taken from the North shore of Bear Swamp Lake.

Special Note: Matty Price hill, a sub-1000'er near Rocky, offers splendid views.
