Tom Jones Mountain affords a good climb and good views on a short hike. It’s especially a great hike when short on time, and is good for kids. I parked on the roadside trailhead parking on County 106 where the Ramapo-Dunderberg Trial crosses the road, and took the Ramapo Dunderberg trail up the mountain. I continued along the ridge and then descended down the trail into the valley where I met up with the Victory Trail. I took the Victory Trail north to its terminus at the road, and then walked along the side of the road along the swamp back to the car.
