Ascent Trip Report

From Rt. 22 I took Dishong Mt. Road South to Gasline Dr. where there's a big sign for the People's Natural Gas Rager Mt. facility, a newly constructed or refurbished road into the heart of the state forest area atop Rager Mt. I parked under electric lines 0.3 mi. from the hp coordinates. My jeep could have made it up the track under the power lines. but it was a beautiful afternoon, so I walked up and then on my return spent an extra hour walking the forest roads along the ridge
