Ascent Trip ReportI had to come to this Highpoint twice because I erred in my original research ...... I didn't visit the Area 2 candidate highpoint on my first visit (2011-05-14). I came back the second time (2011-10-03) to visit Area 2 but I ended up visiting Area 1 & 2, I revised this TR accordingly.
AREA 1 (visited on 2011-05-14 and 2011-10-03) ...... Drive up to a residential area.
From Queens County HP we traveled east on Grand Central Parkway to exit 29, Roslyn Road, at the end of the ramp we turned right and drove north on Roslyn .93 miles to a right turn on Harbor Hill Road, .16 miles a left on Ash Drive, then .4 miles to the crest of the road in a beautiful landscaped/manicured residential area. The high ground is on the grounds of #50 Ash Drive.
There was no home so I took the liberty to walk to the right side of the house and chose my HP at the most obvious "natural ground" location, next to a huge tree, my GPS read 40.79878,-73.63750. The PB coordinates puts the spot in a lower area to the west.
AREA 2 (visited on 2011-10-03) ...... drive up to a residential area.
From Area 1 continue east on Ash Drive to a left turn on Chestnut Drive as it winds its way to hwy #25A. Turn right (east) and go 1.5 miles to a right on Whitney Lane, 1.1 miles to a right on Wheatley Road with an immediate left on Clocktower Lane, drive .43 miles to its dead-end at a circle. This is the summit area, there are 4 large homes on the manicured circle and its obvious that there is not much natural ground here. I went to house #44 (on the right) and #47 (on the left) for permission to walk their grounds, both ladies were very obliging.
After checking out the area I chose 2 spots as possible HP, both beside a huge tree (thinking it must be natural).
1) The tree on the left side of house #44, GPS 40.80435,-73.58526.
2) The tree on the right side of house #47 (about 30 yards from the tree on #44), GPS 40.80463,-73.58509.
This second visit completes this county.
