Ascent Trip ReportThis is an easy one off US 27. It's a few miles north of I-4, right in front of a fairly new gated community, in an area formerly covered with orange groves. The only problem was that the map shows that this point is on "Tri County Road 2", and my wife and I looked carefully but never saw the road. We stopped at a 7-Eleven, but neither the cashier nor a guy in the store knew about the road. We re-checked the map, and noted what roads were to the north and south of Tri County Road 2, to help us narrow the search. Turns out it's now called "Bella Citta Boulevard". Apparently, "Tri County Road 2" sounded a bit provincial for the residents of the posh community that it now leads up to.
We parked in the circle drive at the gate and walked around for two minutes. There was some feeling of being in a high area, with a limited view to the east, but overall not much to see here.
