Hey its Jersey! Was in a fog but it broke up and was able to see a bit from the top of the monument. My legs ached for a week after climbing the stairs to the observation level.

Nice but freezing (-7C) walk from park visitors office up to the monument which was closed. The lake completely frozen and making funny sounds though beautiful. 1h in total.

We drove over to Jersery from Dayton OH for a friends wedding and stopped here along the way. Unfortunately it was raining so we made a quick dash to the top and then headed to the city.

Folks doing construction on the front of the tower told us the area was closed so I climbed the wall on the back side of the tower platform to attain the highest spot. It was a very pretty hike up from the east side on the AT, the steep mountainside and waterfall were an unexpected treat.

A nice backpacking trip. Later that same year I'd ascend again during my AT thru-hike. Is the tower ever open to visitors?

Hiked during my Appalachian Trail thru-hike. A lightning storm was approaching, so I kept moving.

After a tough hike on Mt. Frissell we drove to the top of this state highpoint on the same day. Was surprised to find a pretty park and great views. Weather cleared and was sunny. HP #29.

Climbed around the mountain a bit with a college friend. Apparently the park closes at 8pm so I got picked up by a park ranger and got hauled back to my car without my friend. I quickly found him running the road toward me, though. Hit the top again on February 15, 2010 with my wife on our return from the Catskills.

We were just glad that the monument was open and we could take the stairs to the top. It was an easy way to complete a highpoint in route to Mt. Marcy.

I left my hotel in Philly at 3:45 in the morning. The area was experiencing a record breaking (for April) nor'easter but it only took me 3 hours to get to Highpoint State Park. The creeks and rivers along the way were flooded and swollen. I passed one car submerged up to it's windshield. I got there more than an hour before the gates to the park opened. Since the storm had subsided to a slight drizzle (but still very windy) I decided to hike in and out before the weather got worse again. Just before I reached the highpoint, it DID get worse again. Over the next 45 minutes, rain, sleet, hail and snow fell/blew on me and I hadn't brought a hat, umbrella, or raincoat. Still, since I likely was only going to be there once, I hiked out via the Appalachian Trail back to the highway. I got back to the car just as the ranger was unlocking the gates. I dried off over the next 3.5 hours in the rental car while driving back to the Philadelphia Airport.

I visited High Point during a business trip to CT. Thankfully, the park was open and I could drive up to the monument as I was suffering from the flu. It was a beautiful crisp, clear December morning, and I was the only one there. This is my 17th state highpoint.
