Ascent Trip Report

Big thanks to Arthur Caverly for finding the snowmobile trail up to the summit. I have to agree with him that this has to be a legal alternative to having to ask the landowner. While the land owner seems very nice and cooperative from previous trip reports, I have to wonder if they just get sick of hikers knocking on their door all the time.

I parked where Burley Hill Rd meets New City Rd. The snowmobile trail starts by the stop sign. The trail runs parallel to New City Rd for about 3/10 mile. It then turns right following a dirt road to the lower field. Continue along the edge of the field to the upper field. Turn right and stay along the perimeter. Turn left at the corner of the field, then soon look for the snowmobile trail entering the woods on your right. Continue on this trail. You'll come to a junction to either go straight or left. Turn left (uphill). Continue following the path in a south easterly direction and you'll eventually hit the summit. Follow the same path down. Just under 2 miles RT and around 35 minutes. Make sure you're wearing long pants and a long sleeve shirt. There were some thorns and prickers along the way.
