Ascent Trip Report

From Pa. 201 in Dawson, Pa. I took the Leisenring-Vanderbilt Road south for less than a mile and then left on Lower Sandy Hollow Rd. which loops around the high point and intersects with Little Summit Road. I parked on Little Summit Rd. at the entrance to a gated track about 0.4 mi. south of the high point and headed up the track at the edge of a field and then bush whacked to the high point. On my return I discovered that part of the slope was cleared for a gas line running north from the road about a third of a mile east of where I parked and this avoids the bush whack. Despite my GPS, I got turned around on my return and ended up walking more than twice as far as necessary. Without such confusion it should be a pleasant 20 minute stroll with nice view to the east.
