Waterloo Mountain

Waterloo Mountain

Waterloo Mountain rises steeply above Waterloo Lake and the Musconetcong River. The true summit is a small, viewless cone, but there are cliffs which offer expansive views to the south and east.

Waterloo Mountain is well-covered by the Pebble Trail (marked yellow). In conjunction with the 517-Waterloo Trail, the Pebble circles Waterloo mountain, passing by some views and a gigantic glacial erratic. The true summit is off trail, near the Pebble Trail/Highlands Trail junction.

From the picture, the viewpoint along the Highlands Trail, just below the Eastern summit bump.
