Wapack trail to Temple Mountain ski area summit

Temple Mountain used to be a somewhat busy ski area before it hit hard times in the 1990s. It has since been bought out and stripped - most of the buildings and lifts are now gone. Nonetheless, there is still a maintained trail to the summit (Wapack Trail) with views to the north and northeast.
