Allen R.'s ascents on 10/26/2014

Mount Defiance

Parked at lot B at Ringwood State Park Skylands area, hiked Halifax Trail to Ringwood-Ramapo Trail to Mount Definace summit. Then on to Bald Mountain, Drag Hill, Rocky Mountain, Ilgenstein Rock and back to lot B for a total of 11.5 mile loop hike (part on trail, part bushwack).

Bald Mountain

After summiting Mount Defiance, continued on to Bald Mountain via a mix of pipeline swath, woods road, and bushwacking. While in route from Bald Mountain to Drag Hill, stopped at the stone house ruins that I believe is also known as the Goat Farm or the German House. Bald Mountain was second of five peaks I reached during a 11.5 mile loop hike to/from Ringwood State Park - Skyland Manor area parking lot B.

Drag Hill was third of five peaks reached during a 11.5 mile loop hike to/from Ringwood State Park's Skyland Manor area parking lot B.

Rocky Mountain

Rocky Mountain was forth of five peaks reached during a 11.5 mile loop hike to/from Ringwood State Park's Skyland Manor area parking lot B.

Ilgenstein Rock

Ilgenstein was fifth of five peaks reached during a 11.5 mile loop hike to/from Ringwood State Park's Skyland Manor area parking lot B.

Hasenclever Hill

Parked at Ringwood Manor. Used the Blue Trail for a short distance, then bushwacked the rest of the way to summit of Hasenclever Hill. A total of four miles roundtrip.

This was sixth peak of the day. (Preceded Hasenclever Hill, with a 11.5 miles loop hike over Mountain Defiance, Bald Mountain, Drag Hill, Rocky Mountain, Ilgenstein Rock.)

Jennings Mountain

Parked along East Shore Rd across from trail-head with bridge over Wanaque River. It was a total of two miles round trip, mostly bushwacking, up and down Jennings Mountain

This was seventh peak of the day. Had hiked to Hasenclever Hill earlier and Mountain Defiance / Bald Mountain / Drag Hill / Rocky Mountain / Ilgenstein Rock before that.
