Ascent Trip Report

I approached on foot from the west along Fessenden Street. I walked up the steep grassy slope, starting from the Fessenden/Belt Road intersection, and I saw a decent view once I reached the fence at the hilltop. The city skyline was visible off in the distance.

I then paralleled the northern fenceline, following a rough and somewhat sketchy trail through the woods. I came out at the corner of the fence near the Fessenden/39th Street intersection, which I think is considered the highest point. The view wasn't as nice from that side.
