Ascent Trip Report

Easy climb westbound on the USA/Canada Boundary Line ....... 2km, 1 hour RT.

I approached this hike from the Quebec side. Rose and I found our way to the center of Frelighsburg and from Hwy #237 at the Shell Station, we drove south on Chemin Verger-Modele to the cul-de-sac at 4.1km, straight ahead is the USA/Canada Boundary Line and Boundary Monument 613 (this 3 foot high Granite Monument was renewed this year, 2010). Parked here this was my TH.

Hiked wb on a mowed grass track in the Boundary swath as it climbs to the top of the hill to BOUNDARY MONUMENT 614D at about 1km. On the way I passed Monuments 614 (also renewed this year), 614A, 614B and 614C. The swath is nicely maintained from the TH to here, however west of here it is overgrown and in need of cutting. There are no views to be had except for good view of the swath to the east ..... in the distance to the east you can see the hill with Boundary Monument 608B, my next destination.

The Highpoint of the Boundary Line on this section is at 614D or at 614C, hard for me to say (lack the proper equipment). My GPS reading for 614D was 45.01669, 72.85487. The high-ground of this summit area is in the Quebec woods to the north.
