Mount Defiance

I parked at the NJ Botanical Gardens parking lot A and followed the crossover trail around the edge of the gardens to the Halifax trail. The Halifax trail intersects with a red-blazed trial which leads to the summit. It was a fairly easy hike.....not really any views from the summit at this time of year, but nice views from an overlook halfway up.
