Ascent Trip Report

A grass track walk sb from hwy 30 ..... .8 miles, 25 minutes RT

From I75, exit 135, we drove east on Hwy #30 about 13.6 miles to County Road #9, where we continued another mile and parked on the right side of the Hwy at a line of trees heading south with an orange "Right-Of-Way Boundary Post" just inside the fence.... this is just past a windmill with a pond and a sign "Township Road 68" straight ahead.

The HP is due south at .4 miles, west of the rows of trees and just before the Hancock/Hardin Co Line with a row of trees. This corner is the 960 foot contour.

I hopped the fence and walked south on a mowed grass track just beside (west side) of the tree line .... tall grass field on the right. There is no obvious HP as the whole corner is fairly flat, I stomped in the tall grass and chose a spot at 40.81994,-83.68036.
The rains made for a very wet track, I got 2 soakers, I hiked with an umbrella.
