Ascent Trip Report

A foolish ascent into thickets up from thinning woods for a number of hurried reasons (mostly lack of informed prep and road work along Rte 42) which ended in a crawling bushwhack just before finally reaching the easier traveling tower road; from here, my hike became a tired jaunt to a pair of easy summits and an accessible Fire Tower of distant views, the descent all-road.
