Ascent Trip Report

A woods track southeast bound ...... .58 miles, 30 minutes RT.

We approached from the south Preble CoHP. We drove north on Hwy #121 from New Paris 5.1 miles to a left on Braffetsville Road, 2.24 miles right on Richmond-Palestine Road, .62 miles parked on the right side at a north-south line of trees (its .3 miles north to Rush Road, then 1.86 miles east on Rush Road to New Madison).

I walked south along the line of trees 170 yards to a fence line where I turned left and stepped over a broken fence at an animal path with a Hunter Stand straight ahead. The HP is to the southeast from this area, so I followed animal paths/woods track going in this general direction directly to the obvious summit at about 300 yards ..... wooded with no views, my spot was at 39.96090,-84.74766. , the PB coordinates puts the spot in a lower elevation.
