Ascent Trip Report

Another less-than-exciting east coast county high point... It is in a really rich neighborhood. The top of the hill is obvious, so you need only walk around the intersection area to cover the high point. I actually grew up only a few miles from here in King of Prussia, PA. It's probably the closest high point to my childhood home. Directions from the Blue Route (I-476) as follows:
Take the exit for US-30 West (Lancaster Ave) and go 2.7 miles to Sugartown Rd. Turn left and drive up the hill. Turn left on to Valley Forge Rd (no stop sign or light) and follow it to the obvious high point at the intersection with Exeter Rd. If you hit a 4-way stop sign at Dorset, you have gone 1 street to far.
I got some weird looks from a couple out for a walk before I hopped back in my car and made the 40 minute drive back home.
