Park here.
Walk south on the trail for 150 meters to a partial opening in the woods to the left (east) ....... bushwack east for about 100 meters (paralleling the back fence of a construction business) to a low N-S fence line on the other side of the woods ........ turn right and follow the fence line (100 meters) up a short steep incline and beyond to the open High Point (some thorny stuff to deal with).
