Ascent Trip Report

I approached this point from the county road east of the high point walking through the still unplowed field (after failing to find anyone home at the nearest houses to ask permission). My GPS put the distance from the road to the high point at 0.38 mi. It sounds like others have driven closer, but I didn't mind the walk on a pleasant afternoon.
