Ascent Trip Report

Beautiful day, full fall foliage. Started from PA on 7 Lakes drive at Silver Mine Lake Parking. Followed yellow Menomine trail to the shelter which has 2 bunk beds. Followed the White trail from there north toward Black Mntn passing a good view of the lake before climbing to the top of Black which has a wide view of the lake all the way over to the Hudson river. Today was very clear and Manhattan could be seen very clearly in the distance all the way to the Verrazano Narrows Bridge. Returned the way I came up but followed the Silvermine Road back to the lake and PA. I explored the abandoned Ski Jump area climbing up the left and returning down the right slopes.
