Ascent Trip Report

I have read reports of this summit being a horror, it need not be. Park on Hope Great Meadow Road just south of The Land of Make Believe where the blue blazed Jenny Jump Trail meets the road. The GPS coordinates for the trailhead are (NAD83 datum):
N 40.89726
W 74.95928
There is room for one, maybe two cars at here, and it isn't very obvious. There is a well maintained stone staircase leading up from Hope Great Meadow Road. From there it is about a mile along the Jenny Jump Trail to the vicinity of the Tornfell's summit, which is about 300' south of the trail.
