NJ Phillipsburg Dual Peaks
Marker Description: Great short hike with sweet views. Right outside of Phillipsburg next to the Phillipsburg Riverside Park there are too steep rocky mountains. The trail is easy to find and it only takes a short scramble to a nice trail in between some nice rock formations. Once at the top you'll have great views of the Delaware River and behind you to the Town of Phillipsburg. If you climb the ridge that is further from the river and closer to the town, you have to make sure not to descend on the South side because the mountain is the backdrop for the shooting range. Don't get shot fool.

Getting There: If you park in the area by the football field just past the shooting range you can walk up to the old railroad tracks and go in between both of these small steep rocky hills or "mountains". Or you can park over by the the skate park and head south towards the peaks.

Misc: You can see a lot of deer if your there in the evening. Also some good opportunity fro real mountain climbing from the railroad tracks straight up, I'll add a marker for that once I get around to check ing some of the good tracks.
