Parked at Waterloo Village and took Highlands Trail, bushwhacked past Pebble Loop and got to summit. Re-traced route back to car. Not much of a view.
Parked on Stuyvesant Road, off of route 517; Stuyvesant Road was in questionable repair, so drive it carefully if you do.
Took the 517/Waterloo Trail to the Switchback Loop to the Ditch/Cardiac Trail to the summit area. Took some unmarked trails on the north side of Allamuchy until I found the Ditch/Cardiac, and the back to 517/Waterloo Trail to the parking area. I saw a lot of poison ivy on the unmarked trails, and some on the Ditch/Cardiac Trail as well. The 517/Waterloo and Ditch/Cardiac both have a number of re-routes due to significant erosion on the original route, so if you plan to use the trails, watch the blazes.
Parked at the state line, then took the State Line Trail to the Appalachian Trail. Went south on the Ernest Walter Trail, and continued south when the Ernest Walter turned east. Bushwhacked along the ridge for 0.25 miles, then hit the summit. About 100 feet east of the summit, there was a viewpoint that gave us a nice look at Manhattan. Retraced our route back to the Ernest Walter Trail, and completed the loop back to the State Line Trail.
This route is a nearly 5 mile approach to thhis summit.
Parked in the same lot described by Ralph Bressler, and saw the trail he described. There is a network of trails on Morris Lake Mountain, but I have not been able to find a map anywhere. We did some bushwhacking, but mostly stayed on the trails. As we appeoached the top, there was poison ivy everywhere. Nice view of Lake Mohawk to the south of the summit area.
Summited twice during the Mahlon Mayhem 25KM trail run.
We parked in the DWG Appalachian Trail parking area, and took the Tammany Trail up and the Blue Dot Trail to the AT on the way down. Good solid 1200 foot climb.
I parked at the AT parking lot and went up on the AT. Bushwhackd southwest long the ridge until I got to the summit area. Then, I tried to follow the blue blazes down to NJ94, because I didn't want to re-trace my steps. That was a big mistake. I wound up by Hidden Valley ski area on the southwest end of the mountain, and turnd this into a 9 mile hike. Oh well, at least I bagged the peak.
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.
Parked in P4 and took Highlands Trail east then north to the summit area.
Started at the Mountain Lakes Trail, went about 1/4 mile, then bushwhacked up the east face. While it was a little steeper than it appeared, it is certainly passable.
After summiting Jenny Jump #3, I headed over towards this peak. Found the false summit mentioend by several others and followed that small ridge to the west. I then turned south, dropped down into the col, and climbed up to the summit area. Had to search a little on the summit area for the cairn, but headed a little bit west and found it. Re-traced my steps back to my car, going back over JJ#3.
