Ascent Trip Report

There are 3 areas with the same 1200 foot contour, I visited all 3.

AREA 1 ...From Hwy 46 100 yards south of I80 we drove south on Mooney Road for .3 miles to a right on Redwood Way, .11 miles left on Timberline Drive, .12 miles right on Hickory Place, .12 miles left (south) on Hemlock Lane at the t-junction, then to a cul-de-sac. The high ground is between house #1 & 3. I went to house #1 and found no one home, so I took the liberty to quickly visit the area (2 min) just beside the driveway, my GPS 40.88396,-74.68497.

AREA 2 ..... I drove Hemlock back north to the other ends cul-de-sac, went to house #10 and no one home again. I quickly went between/rear of houses 8/10 to a bump. GPS 40.88568,-74.68605.

AREA 3 .... We went back to Mooney Road and continued for .5 miles, to a right on the driveway leading to the summit at 200 yards .... capped with 2 Water Tanks and a Communication Tower.
I walked the perimeter of the fenced-in installation and chose my spot outside the fence at the rear/west side, GPS 40.88058,-74.68748.
