Ascent Trip Report

Parked down at the end of Midwood Farm Rd. at a wide spot. The trailhead was overgrown, but discovered that it was marked with a diamond marker. Probably needed to read the other trip reports closer.

Nice gentle slope following the directions from COHP.org trip reports. No view from the top though.

On the trip back down followed the wrong path at the spur. The most obvious trail ended up in someone's backyard. Backtracked to the spur and found the correct trail.
