| Location:||USA-New York|

Ascent Trip ReportBushwhacked most of the way up from the hunter's cabin and found a blue-blazed path not far below the summit. This path took me directly to the canister. Decided to follow these blazes for as far as I could on the descent. This path kind of faded out in spots and the blazes were a little sporadic, but I eventually arrived back at the road within sight of the cabin. There were even two small cairns marking the start of the path which I totally missed on the way up.
