Ascent Trip ReportBagging this highpoint was trivial, Once I found the proper drive. I followed directions found at COHP.org.. I attempted this highpoint because I was "rained out' at work, and had the day, however, it was raining. (It was freezing rain in Sonmerset County, however, and the trip when I arrived became a bit dicey. This highpoint may not be available soon, as the access seems to be the driveway of a home presently being built (One of the reasons I chose it today). I ascended the shor5t gravel drive with my car, as no one was around, and nothing was posted, and pulled off to the right just before the locked gate. I enetered the woods, and soon found thwe highest ground - a rock with a cairn built atop of it. I recorded it on my GPS, and took a pic.
