Ascent Trip Report

I parked next to the locked gate of the access road to the AT & T tower just off Pa. 164. The road goes up to the tower at just over 2600 feet. Immediately behind the tower is a good quality trail that goes to within 75 yards of the hp coordinates. Mostly wooded but some views through the trees.
