Started out at Bearfort Waters P7
To Old Coal Trail west and cut right up Split Rock. Really did feel like a high point at over 1400’ ASL. Great quick hike, hit a heavy sleet storm on the way up!
Parked at large rock pull off at the top of Sand Pond Road. Just below the parking area is a heavily wooded trail which quickly turns into a bushwhack. Over a small stream to an ATV trail. Followed ATV trail west then turned north. Took my chances and crossed into private property briefly before shooting my compass towards the actual high point and bushwhacking again over a small stream and up a notable 100-200’ knoll before coming across a cairn indicating I’ve hit the highest point in NJ outside of the Kittatinny Range! Will be back again to do this one.
