SUNRISE MOUNTAIN
Kittatinny Mountains, Sussex County, NJ


Consists of Shawangunk conglomerate, a mixture of white quartz and reddish slate pebbles embedded in a grayish silicate matrix. The conglomerate, sometimes called "pudding stone," forms the crest of Kittatinny Mountain and its steep rocky southeastern slope. Excellent examples of the conglomerate can be observed along the Appalachian Trail, which leads to the summit of Sunrise Mountain. (A Guide to Stokes State Forest, p2)
