WAC BRAVO's ascents on 08/16/2015

Drag Hill

4-peak loop through Ramapo Valley County Reservation, including 3 NJ1kers. From the parking lot, took the Silver Trail to the Halifax Trail, following it to Bear Swamp Lake, and then used the Hoeferlin Memorial Trail to summit Ilgenstein Rock. Left the summit by the Connector Trail to Cannonball Trail and hung a left onto the Shore Trail. From here I bushwacked to the Drag Hill and Rocky Mountain summits. Hopped onto the Red-Silver Trail To the Schuber Trail, then took the Ridge Trail to within bushwacking range of Monroe Ridge, a sub-1k peak in the park which I added to increase the mileage. After summiting the ridge, took the Ridge Trail back to the Silver Trail and out the parking lot. Total distance was just under 12 miles in 4 hours.
