Jenny Jump - Ghost Lake - 5/21/11

We needed a moderate-yet-pretty trail to do with some friends who were getting back into hiking shape, so we headed over to Jenny Jump. We hadn't been there in just about two years exactly.

There are several nice scenic viewpoints, including of the Delaware Water Gap. The hike leads to Ghost Lake, which is a small but pretty lily-pond filled lake. The trails are…

Dunnfield Creek - Sunfish Pond - AT - 5/9/11

We opted for one of our all-time faves, Dunnfield Creek trail to Sunfish Pond, around the pond, then return via the Appalachian Trail. It had been a few years since we'd done this route, as we've been sticking to the longer and more challenging Mt Tammany Fire Road - Sunfish - Dunnfield route.

Since it wasn't a weekend, it was also a better day to be going to… Continue

Allamuchy Mountain State Park North, Cranberry Lake/Highlands Trail Loop - 05/14/2011

With the weather not looking so good for the weekend, I choose Saturday to hike as it seemed to be the better day. I did not want to go somewhere with a lot of views on such a dreary day and I was pressed for time so I had to pick a place somewhat close to home.  I headed back to Allamuchy Mountain State Park where I had been last month to hike some different trails in the north section.  What a difference a month makes!  Even on an overcast, occasionally spritzy day, the new green leaves…

Tillman Ravine, Walpack Cemetery, Millbrook, Van Campens Glen - 5/1/11


Our spring hiking so far was getting tripped up by weather, weekend obligations, and a vacation spent tooling around the Yucatan in Mexico (where the vast, flat expanses of trees reminded us of Jersey's Pinelands!).

Finally we got some time free, and with some recent rain decided on two hikes with plenty of waterfall action. First up, a quick 2.0…

An attempt at Buttermilk Falls with a plan B hike of the Blue Mt. Lakes Trail May 8 2011

It was a day for just me and Orion to hike. The weather was perfect. The drive up to Water Gap was beautiful (we go up Rt. 31 from South Jersey. It's a 2 hour drive but it's worth it every time.) So we parked at the lot by Buttermilk Falls on Mountain Road. The plan (plan A that is) was to go up the Buttermilk Falls trail to Woods Trail (southbound), around Blue Mt. Lake, back to Woods Trail and back down the Falls trail.…
