I parked along NJ 515 (Vernon-Stockholm Road), roughly due East of the summit. I worked around the pond to the north, with a few climbs. Straightforward bushwhack, with a few small stream crossings. Peaceful and quiet at the summit. Very enjoyable bushwhack.
I parked in the parking area at the intersection of Route 565 and Tall Timbers Road. Swampy area to the east of the road was dense but passable. As soon as I began to climb, the swampiness was traded in for blowdown, blowdown everywhere. I eventually stumbled on a woods road as I approached the summit, which led me to an old trail, and got me trhough some of the blowdown. I reached the summit and found the teepee and both benchmarks quickly. On the way back dfown, I decided to try something different, and spent a lot of time working through blowdown I managed to avoid on the way up. I would say Pochuck was not difficult, but much harder than it looked from the road.
