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.
Reach the top and you’ll know why they call it Rocky Mountain. About an inch of snow on the ground. 21 degrees and sunny. Started from the Ramapo Reservation. All three lakes were frozen over. Went with my beagle Nugget and my parents’ pit/shepherd mix Lucy.
