At just 1,000 feet in elevation and 200 feet of prominence, the Tornfell just barely qualifies as a New Jersey high peak. But do not be fooled by its meager size, for this godforsaken mound of rock is shrouded in impenetrable blowdown and capped with bloodthirsty pricker bushes. Even some of the most dedicated NJ1K hikers have cursed this hill, wishing it were never discovered.
Fifth of five peaks for the day. After Jenny Jump Mountain #1 and Jenny Jump Mountain #2, followed Blue Trail most of the way and then bushwacked to reach summit of The Tornfell. Per description, lot's of thorns (multiflora rose) to get through; glad I hiked this time of year rather than in summer. Hiked a total of 6.7 miles round trip to reach three peaks: Jenny Jump #1, Jenny Jump #2, and The Tornfell.
Continued across office parking lot to Jenny jump trail.
Again a lot of blow downs.
Came to false summit and found the actual summit very easily. Had a quick breakfast at the cairn. Headed down and at the false summit noticed the very nice view of the water gap.
