Ascent Trip Report

You can actually drive to the summit. Very Jersey. Overall, the hike was about 12 miles. We started at the parking lot on top and walked down the hill, eventually connecting with the Long Path (at the Port Jervis/northeast end of the NYNJTC map), which we followed for a bit. We decided to leave the LP and bushwack for a little while, but turned around when we saw private property signs for the Port Jervis Buckhorn Gun Club - there were tree stands everywhere and hunting season had just started. After wandering the woods for a while, we hiked to the summit and then to the car, which was 100 yds away.
