from the Ramapo Reservation parking area...I took the silver trail to the Halifax trail, past Hawk Rock with view of Ramapo College, to the gas pipeline and northern approach to the summit. You can hear the gas pipeline long before you get there. It seem much louder today than when I hiked up Rocky Mountain last summer. Anyway, i followed the pipeline cutout to its highest point and then found the summit a few feet away. Believe it or not, there was somewhat of a cool breeze on top even though temps. were rapidly approaching triple digits early in the morning. I returned going south on the pipeline cutout and took the red-silver trail to the orange-blazed schuber trail back to the silver trail with a stop at MacMillan reservoir.
