Ascent Trip Report

Started at pavement's end on N Fox Hill Drive, so I could walk entire ridge and summit at the end. Jeep trail all the way. Actual summit is fenced in at relay towers and unaccessible. On way back, extended out to NW end of ridge. Along this stretch where I found the highest erratic along my route at about 1125msl. Good walk as an alternative to Badger Mtn.
