Ascent Trip Report

Not sure best way to do this. There appears to be a cleared easement behind the subdivision houses. The aerial showed development along the small hill but not at the peak. Arriving at the driveway cleared to the peak there is a post indicating there is an address for the lot but no house yet. No signs. Tons of snow shoe tracks along the drive. I followed them to the obvious peak and the snow shoes end at the peak. I surmise locals in the area use it as hike but once someone builds there this will be off limits. The snow was deep up to 2 feet outside of the tracks so following the existing tracks was the only way this was bearable in boots.

Never need to go here again as it appears to be private and heading to house building someday
