Passaic County, New Jersey
Hike at Ringwood up Mount Defiance. Was a really cold day in late fall - about 20 degrees or so. Started at the lower parking lot, went on the large tree meadow to Swan Pond, took the Cross Over trail north to the Halifax Trail up Mount Defiance. Bushwacked to the viewpoint, then continued back on the trail to the Ringwood Ramapo Trail. Took the Ringwood Ramapo trail north to top of mountain, then turned around and headed back down.
