This bushwack SUCKS. I should have tried first straight up fe ok m the road. I went west into the col, then had to backtrack. Going up to Torne Fell next. Then up to park office and back to Mt. Lake.
From JJ4 to here about 90 min. Summit at 19:25. Rt 80 is roaring. Photo from lookout to the SW
A -REAL- big scramble up from the swamp. View of NYC was exquisite.
Rainy mess. Long run day.
Nice run up from Otter Hole. 31min flat. Looking forward to the Mt. Laurel bloom!
Took the whole Fam-Damily!
Spectacular spring day. Ducked outta work early to get this in before a trip. Lotta shooters at the lake today. Whit to Green to Red. Immediately got off red and bushwacked before the woods will up.
Still 10-14 inches of snow. Snowshoed up from OH lot. Laid first tracks up most of the route. Great day to be alive! 25° and gusty as heck.
Started from the parking area just above office and took the long way around Swamp (red) trail to its end. Picked up Spring (blue) trail to Summit (yellow) went north to high point, logged it. Walking off the small rise of the summit it punctured my palm nicely on a small Honey Locust thorn. Cool. Looped Summit trail down to State Park Rd. Then back up Blue and Summit back to the other side. Great Hike.
Drove to pull off just north of the Observatory. Hiked up from there. The col between 1 and 2 really is pretty intimidating. I'll go back one day just to ascend from that side.
Parked at lot near spring. Entered onto Jenny Jump trail and turned immediately up the hill after the large fallen white oak. Bushwacked the whole thing. Few very steep sections. Also very dense raspberries, Japanese barberry, and multiflora rose. 1 Mile round trip with almost 600' ascent.
