Ascent Trip Report

... just lucked out finding the Red-blazed Blue Mtn Trail going along between parallel wood roads at N40° 12.353 W77° 35.960 & N40° 11.810 W77° 35.268. I believe the wide gravel road going SW from my trailhead (N40° 12.659 W77° 35.496) is mostly auto driveable to Blue Mtn Trail, unlike the road to its south. The well-maintained trail made for an enjoyable change between road walks to the highpoint. The views to be had are along Three Square Hollow Road on the ascent/descent to/from the heights.
