Ascent Trip Report

The hp is about a half mile north of US422, NW of Ebensburg (slightly west of the junction with 219). I parked on a small access rd. to some state forest structures. There are some abandoned forest tracks through the area in the general direction of the hp with some bushwhacking, but not much heavy brush or thorn bushes--easier than most Pa. bushwhacks. Nothing scenic at the forested hp.
