Ascent Trip Report

Nobody home at either location. For the more northerly of the two, someone had recently made a path through the weeds behind the property--I half expected to find another chp'er waiting for me, but I still wished I had worn a long sleeved shirt because of the the thorn bushes.

For the second, the path behind the house is now overgrown so it was something of a bushwhack. I think that the high point is roughly midway between Wetaug and Mill Creek roads. From the latter it would be slightly more elevation gain, but a field is cleared nearly to the hp, thus less weeds to bushwhack.

Statistics are for both points combined.
