Hiked from Fairview Road to Sunrise Mountain on the Appalachian trail, passing over the Mount Paradise summit along the way.
Hiked from Delaware Water Gap.
Took the trail up Buck Mountain from Otterhole. Two very awesome views; Greenpond Mountain can be seen from the west side, and High Mountain Preserve in Wayne to the east. The Manhattan skyline is also extremely prominent.
Started to climb up Buck Mountain, but had to turn around after the first viewpoint because of a fatigued party member.
Went up the Milton fire tower again to test out my brother's new camera lens. Pretty good zoom.
Parked at the picnic area off Weldon Road. Took the white trail to the high point. The actual high point is not by the sign along the trail, so I bushwhacked to what appeared to be the highest to me. Pretty thick brush at the top, and I had to peel two ticks off myself after I got back to the trail. Overall, enjoyable hike.
Parked on Otterhole Road. Took the blue trail up to the top by the stone living room. Found no log book. Then proceeded to Osio Rock, which has one of the best views in NJ. Definitely coming here again when there's more visibility (to see the NYC skyline better).
Parked off Clinton Road and hiked up the gas pipeline clearing. Took the blue trail up the rest of the way. Awesome hike; Terrace Pond has some pretty neat rocks.
Parked on October Hill Road. Very short trip to the top. Good views of Craigmeur (former ski complex) and Green pond. Unfortunate that the area has graffiti and is littered with beer cans.
