Ascent Trip Report

There are four peaks of approximately the same height and all are so close to the road this isn't even a good walk. In summer you can pull off the road on a lane. In winter the safest place to park is 1/4 mile to the north on Winter Road. There are views to the north and east from the peak on the east side of 144th St, but no views at all from the three peaks on the ridge slightly to the southwest of the peak indicated as the primary one, as they are in the woods. The database says this is in the Manistee National Forest, but I don't believe that it is. The ridge on the west side of 144th St is definitely on private land. The primary peak on the east side of the road is at the edge of agricultural land.
