Ramapos - Mount Defiance
April 24 Our Tuesday hikes continue as Tina & I climbed Mount Defiance (1040) in Northern NJ's Ramapo Mountains, in Skylands Manor/NJ Botanical Garden. This is "peak" number 15 in our quest to hike the 52 NJ mountains over 1K in elevation.

Hike Route: Park at parking lot A at the Skylands Manor/NJ Botanical Garden and follow the white-blazed Crossover Trail in an eastward direction to the back of the gardens. The Crossover Trail will intersect with the green-blazed Halifax Trail; take the Halifax Trail. Near the top of Mount Defiance, take the red-blazed Ringwood-Ramapo Trail North to the summit.
