Ascent Trip Report

Old ski area maintenance road to summit. Wild turkey lifted, flew across across road for me below summit, closest view yet. Summit clearing with multiple roads led to a second filled with rusted, grounded chair lifts. The highest point (42.50247, -78.53278) with the road now an ATV crossing, was the chairlift cut away pylon and foundation.
