Historic New York? ? ? ? ? The steep, barren Ramapo Mountains, with elevations of less than 1300 feet, isolated this region from the mainstream of developments in the Hudson Valley. The Ramapo River, flowing from Round Lake near Monroe into New Jersey, provided a natural route through the mountains, and the path of a Delaware Indian trail. Permanent settlement in the valley, beginning about 1710, was slow until after 1740.
