Ascent Trip Report

Parked at the pull-off on NJ 23 and approached the summit from the northeast. It is a fairly uncomplicated bushwhack, with brush that is not too dense. I found the same trail that Hoosier found, and too that to the summit. I took the trail down and eventually made it to a grown-in woods road, which led back to NJ23 near where my car was parked.

I started in a light rain, and by the time I reached the summit, it was pretty heavy.
