Ascent Trip ReportA moderate climb on the well-maintained Long Path ......4.4 miles, 2h10 hours RT.
It rained for most of the night and the forecast for today was for more rain. No way I'd abort, this COHP is too far away from home.
Even though I dressed for the occasion, I was completely soaked when I got back including all of my papers.
I approached from the West, the village of Grand Orange, Hwy intersection 30/23. I drove east 23 for 6.1 miles to Hwy intersection 23/23A (east of Prattsville, still recovering from the flood of August 2011), I continued east on 23 for another 1.58 miles to a left on CR4.
(0.00) I zeroed my odo at corner 23/CR4 and drove north on CR4.
(0.19) I stayed left at the fork (Dent Road).
(1.96) Arrived at 4-Way-Crossing with CR10 and stayed straight on Sant Tomkins Road.
(2.45) Stayed left at the fork signed Schrader Road.
(3.82) Turned right at T-Intersection with Marvin-Rion Road (note that Schrader Road at this intersection is signed Albert Slater).
(4.23) Right on Huntersfield Road.
(5.01) Pavement ends, I continued straight on a narrow dirt road.
(5.19) Arrived at a dirt road on the right with a large sign "NY Huntersfield State Forest". I parked here this was my TH, albeit somewhat obscure ...... on the left is red disc blaze for the Long Path, I added orange flag tape, just inside at 30 yards is a sign "Huntersfield Lean-To 2.15 miles, CCC Road 6.55 miles".
I followed the well-blazed/easy-to-follow Long Path as it climbs generally north to the ridge, then southeast along the ridge directly to the summit's BM ....... "US Coast & Geodetic Survey, Huntersfield, 1942", embedded in rock beside the trail.
Only 2 NY CoHPs to go.
