Ascent Trip Report

I used to spend days running around in this reservation when I was growing up in NJ. Lots of eastern hardwoods: maples, beeches, oaks, hickory, tulip. Terrain varies from rocky promontories to swamp. There is a lookout that has a great view of Manhattan along the east edge of the reservation. The shell of a building that stood there in the late 1970's was eventually turned into a fine dining restaurant.
