Ascent Trip Report

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.
