LIDAR elevation data, as analyzed by Doug Melton in 2019, shows that nearby Jackie Jones Mountain is 6 feet higher than Rockhouse Mountain, and therefore Rockhouse no longer has a claim as one of the possible highest points in Rockland County. This is still a short and pleasant hike, but it is no longer needed to claim the Rockland CoHP.
