Ascent Trip Report

From Pa. 31 I took SR 1013 n. to a one lane bridge. There's a parking spot on the left just before the bridge. I walked back down the road 0.16 mi. to a gate for a hunt club with a "members only" sign but no "no trespassing." It was deserted today but I wouldn't go up here during hunting season. Judging from the topo map the hunt club property is tucked into what is mostly state land. I followed tracks with some bush whack along a fence line that I assume is the hunt club boundary. Eventually I ran into a more pronounced forest road. The hp appears to be in the middle of a wooded area but there are nice views just east of there. On the way down I followed a different track that crossed the hunt club property briefly but appeared to be mostly on state land. I'll post a GPS log.
