The view from Ilgenstein Rock is beautiful and I wish I had saved it for a clear day. The heat and humidity was high early in the morning and the gnats and skeeters accompanied me the entire 9 miles. BUT this was a great hike despite! I scared a couple of deer, I have know clue how I got so close without them or me knowing it. Paybacks though, 15 minutes later a bear scared me. Trails are well marked and maintained.
I was on the trail by 545, but I went a mile in the wrong direction and had to back track :) oops!
By the time I got to the overlook, the sun was shining. Bushwhacked to the summit and took an unmarked trail off the yellow back to the parking lot. Because of my detour and work schedule, I had to "ditch" the Cardiac trail and save Allamuchy Mountain for another day.
Mt. Paradise isn't spectacular but the rest of this hike was! Buttermilk Falls, Hemlock Pond and Silver Spray are such beautiful places. Enjoyed No. 31 of my 52 Hike Challenge!
Great fun, easy hike for No. 30 of my 52 Hike Challenge. Made a new friend on the trail.
Solo hike to Osio Rock and Torne Summit. It was a great day for this hike! Lot's to see, tons of birds were about. Enjoyed a rest at the Stone Living Room. This was hike 26 for me of my 52 hike challenge. It's been great so far!!
Sunny day for a walk along the ridge. No.19 of my 52 Hike Challenge
Windy and sunny, a beautiful day. Great day for a Happy Birthday Hike and No.14 of my 52 Hike Challenge
I love Abram Hewitt! Great hike even on a cloudy day this place is spectacular. I want to live here! This is No.7 of my 52 Hike Challenge
My husband and I reached the summits of Mt. Tammany and Mt. Minsi for our 10 year anniversary. It was fun!! And 15 years ago, we might just have to do it again.
