Ascent Trip ReportThis was an easy 3-minute walk and 10 yard bushwhack along the radio tower access road on Tower Hill Road, but the landowner was waiting for me with the police when I got back to my car 10 minutes later. They didn't give me any real hassle, there have just been too many vandals and drug users in the area and they are very protective of these woods in this upscale neighborhood. The easiest and most legal way to climb this hill is from the actual highpoint landowner's driveway at 221 Tower Hill Road, but I never actually approached his house. The most discrete way to do this hill without arousing anyone's suspicions is to bushwhack from some trails in Diamond Hill State Park just to the northeast. For any further info, feel free to contact me.
