Ascent Trip Report

Short walk up on a paved road.

From Todt Hill, in NY. we found our way to South Amboy and travelled the Garden State Parkway East to exit 116 (keyport/hazlet area). At the bottom of the ramp make a right turn, sign says Central Maintenance Yard, drive .5km to a right turn on Crawford Corners Road (Holmdel Town Hall on the corner). In .4km make a right on Holmdel Road and travel .6km to the entrance on the right for Àlcatel.Lucent, Crawford Hill Laboratory ....... on the left is Longview Drive.

The High Point is behind the large Laboratory Building on top of the hill ..... a large clearing on a flat area with industrial buildings and equipment, no views.
From the private road entrance drive and park at the Laboratory parking and walk a paved road .5km to the summit ..... get permission at the office if possible. The High Point is in the middle of the large flat area.

From this Crawford Hill High Point we drove to the North side of the Parkway to Telegraph Hill Park and the Robert B Maynard Art Centre.
