Ascent Trip Report

Visiting family in Mahwah so decided to hike the HP of Bergen County/Mahwah. As described by several other trip reports, follow the power lines once you get to the end of Mountain Avenue and the hike is fairly straightforward. I left about 50 minutes prior to sunset and had limited time for pics/video. I could have made a small fortune if I collected the beer bottles/cans along the way. Unfortunately a lot of garbage on the trail. Refrigerators, clothes, and even a car. If I hike it again, I'll bring a garbage bag and pick up what I can. Once I reached the top no view to speak of (luckily it's the winter so no foliage and I could see surrounding hills/mountains.)
