Ascent Trip Report

I took the Salt Lick Point trail. The highest point is now called 'Salt Lick Point'. At least 410 feet of gain. Those desiring a hike of equal length but less elevation gain can take the Newman trail from S. Meyer Road, which goes down a coulee and up the other side, or try a bushwhack from the end of W. Harrisonville Dr.... One online map seems to indicate a trail rather than a bushwhack.
