Ascent Trip ReportFrom the center of Sparta, take Main Street east and cross under NJ-15. Take an almost immediate right turn onto Glen Road/CR-620. Go uphill 0.2 miles to a tricky left turn onto a road signed for Sparta Glen, a park area. Take this 0.3 miles to a large parking area on the right (N 41.03937 X W 74.61890). A dirt road heads uphill on the opposite side, just a few feet downhill from the parking area. Hike the dirt road uphill to a junction, turn right, then mostly sidehill to another junction, which is taken left and steeply uphill. Follow the trail to a couple of steep, rocky sections, requiring some scrambling, and reach the flattish upper mountain. Follow your nose and GPS to a slight summit bump, only a few feet off the trail. Good winter views of Lake Mohawk and Morris Lake. About 450 feet gain.
