Ascent Trip Report

Mercer (Trenton) NJ, Baldpate Mtn. I got there, near Washington's Crossing. I looked at the map at the bulletin board at the park there, then hiked the short distance. The briars were the worst I've seen in a few years. They weren't so bad getting up on the 'stone fence', but too darn thick to go further south. The 'stone fence' looked the highest up there on top. I did manage to force my way about 15 feet to touch the top of an upended root ball, fallen tree. The top of that root ball looked higher than the 'stone fence'. Be thankful that there is a trail that goes so close to the coHP.
