North Hook Mountain

Palisades Cliffs
Hook Mountain State Park
Rockland County, New York

Went on hike to search for any minerals in the old diabase quarries, and then climbed the cliffs to the summit. Parked at Rockland Lake Landing parking site, walked down closed landing road to the quarries. Then bushwacked up to the top of the mountain, hit the Long Path and hiked down the Long Path to the trailhead.
