Jenny Jump Mountain, Jenny Jump State Forest, Hope, NJ

April 7, 2013

Distance: 2.8 miles
Time: 1 hour 23 minutes

Year to date miles: 32.1

Map: NYNJTC Jenny Jump Trail Map and I also found this one useful: Jenny Jump State Forest Camping Area and general park information: Jenny Jump State Forest

Parking: See directions. Plenty of spots.

Restrooms: Indoor restrooms in parking area, and then again near the campsites as you hike along the park road.

Post Hike Dinner: Whole Foods, Madison, NJ

Directions: Jenny Jump Mountain Longer Loop Hike via Summit and Swamp Trails

Notes: The beginning of this hike has views over farmland with hawks flying above. This hike is easy/moderate. We met quite a few people on the trail. There were no views at the summit of Jenny Jump Mountain. The return trip portion of the hike has a large portion which is a road walk (park road) past campsites. This hike could be extended to make it longer - for example by hiking to Ghost Lake. Overall, I didn't find this hike very interesting.

View along the ridge. When we drove into the area we saw a number of horse farms.
