Ascent Trip Report

My second exploration here leaves me with a way to create a really neat club hike of about six miles by car spotting at the bottom the Western Ridge Trail on Spier Falls Road; instead of the Waterfall Trail, the hike will begin with a walk west to round Lake Bonita and then climb to the Lake Ann Lean-to for a rest stop, then High Rock with a very short open woods wac to the Eastern Ridge Trail (I met a mountain biker there as I exited who told me he and his friends often do that, otherwise met no one but dog walkers at Lake Bonita and a descending to lake fisherman) followed by a last rest stop at the expansive Hudson River overlook before the final descent.

High Rock 2.72 miles / 1:45 hours
Hill 1158 3.82 / 2:38
TH 7.47 / 5:45
