Ascent Trip ReportMaybe my map reading skills aren't up to snuff but the road signs didn't seem to have more than a very rough relationship to what I expected from my map. My default was basically to follow GPS headings from the blacktop off Pa. 56 in Spring Church Pa. marked as 359 on my map (but I didn't see any numbers and a variety of street names) That got me to something called Wagle Hill Rd. on my map but who knows? A dirt track (rough) heads off the road from a spot about 0.3 mi. SE of the hp. I parked near a gas well about 0.2 mi. from the hp. A rough track headed down and up through a nicely wooded area. After finding the underwhelming hp I took advantage of the pleasant afternoon to walk the woods tracks an extra half mi. or so.
