Parked at the Milton Snow Bowl pull off. Hiked up the communications tower road to the true summit and continued on for another .5 mile to see the Milton Fire Tower. Doubled back and headed onto Morris County High Point.
After Bowling Green Mountain I crossed the road and took the faint path that met up with some of the trails in the Mahlon Dickerson Reservation. Hiked out to the trailer area and continued on past to the short ascent up to the sign. Doubled back to the car and drove to the parking lot for Morris Lake Mountain.
Parked at the Sparta Glen Park and took the blue, orange and then green/yellow dot trail up to the summit. There's a fun rock scrambled right before the summit. The trails used were suprisingly steep. Be careful on the descents. No views from the summit.
Parked near the park office and began the day with a steep bushwhack from the col between JJ1 and JJ2. Summitted JJ2 and descended to the observatory and took the road back to the parking lot.
Returned to the parking lot after JJ2 and hiked the ~1.5 miles out to the Tornfell. trail easy but overgrown in some areas with prickers sticking out. Not ideal to wear shorts but not too bad. Was able to avoid a lot of the prickers that surround the summit. Doubled back to the parking lot to get JJ1.
Got back to the parking lot after the Tornfell and hiked the Ghost Loop up to JJ1. Bushwhacked to the true summit, got startled by a deer that ran off into the woods. Doubled back to the car and drove to the Mountain Lake trailhead to hike JJ3 and JJ4.
Parked at the Mountain Lake trailhead for JJ State Forest. Hiked up the yellow and blue trail until I came close to the summit. Once I was close I bushwhacked up the thick, rocky forest to the true summit. It started to get very humid and hot as it was the middle of the afternoon.
This one was extremely tough! came down the otherside from JJ3 and right before the blue trail starts to descend back to the road I began bushwhacking up to JJ4. Started off going up a steeper hill but I quickly ran into a woods road that brought me down to the col between JJ4 and the false summit next to it. The final ascent to JJ4 was short but brutal as there was a lot of blowdown. After breaking through the thicker part of the forest, the final ascent to the true summit was easy and through open forest. Doubled back roughly the same way and took the woods road down to the road. Finished off the loop with an easy 1 mile road walk back to the car.
Parked at the Millbrook Road parking lot and took the High Point Trail up. Easy walk to cap off a 6 peak day.
Parked at the Blue Mountain Lakes parking lot as the Crater Lake lot was closed. Connected with the AT near Hemlock Pond and took it up near the summit. Followed a herd path to the summit communications tower.
Trail ran the Stonetown Circular Trail clockwise, summitting Windbeam from the Bear Mtn. col side.
Trail ran the Rattlesnake Swamp trail out to the Mohican Outdoors Center and up to the fire tower.
Hiked the monument loop trail clockwise.
First hike ever. Hiked from campsites off of Old Mine Rd. to Tammany Parking lot off of 80W.
