Ascent Trip Report

Short hike from Ontario County to Monroe County Highpoint ........ overall .3miles, 30 minutes.


Located just north of the County's southwest corner, on the Monroe/Ontario County Line. The TH, northeast of the Highpoint, and the driving to it is all in Ontario County. I used Michael Schwartz's excellent TR of July 2004 from COHP.org. Its noted that Gary Fallesen's book locates the Highpoint southwest of that of PB and at a lower elevation.

From the Thruway I90, exit45, in Ontario County travel on Hwy #96 east for 2 miles to a right turn on Hwy #251, travel west on #251 to left turn (south) on Strong Road at 2.3 miles. Drive south on Strong Road (cross Dryer Road and CR41) for 3.1 miles to a right turn (west) on Parish Road. At .8 miles make a left (south) on Turkey Run (on the County Line for a short distance) and follow it for .5 miles (bends left then right)to a large grassy area. Park on the immediate right where the road dips and arrives at the grassy area (this is Ontario County) ...... this is the TH, the Highpoint is generally west-southwest. Straight ahead is a grass-track driveway (posted #1760) leading to the private house in the woods, to the right (west) at the low side of the parking is a wide grass track that leads to the summit.

Follow the grass track (turns to dirt) as it bends left, dips and bends right as it climbs/undulates to the start of an open grass area at the County Line (about 250 yards), ignore side paths that come in from the right. The Highpoint is on the right in the trees as you enter the open area. My GPS reading was 42.94533, 77.48270.
