Ascent Trip Report

A new campground is just now being developed in the high point area with two, very new metal fire rings triangulating quick steps from their sites to summit (because the island is thickly overgrown, fortunate), found 3 of 5 geocaches (GC) along the way and on returning from Observation Point met a turtle in the middle of the trail junction beyond, took turtle pictures, went on from there to enjoy my slow jog to day use and boat launch area before reaching Bike Trail and Link to trailhead; here continued on Schodack Island Way to reaching my exploration of an (under construction) campground area and then looping back around to Contact Station (GC3) and trailhead start, while three benchmarks along the Hudson River shoreline would have required serious bushwacking to discover.
