Ascent Trip Report

6.65 mile trail/road/bushwhack run to Brandy Brow, Corliss (from 2 directions), and Sweet Hills. After doing Brandy Brow Hill, I bushwhacked up the North side of Corliss Hill. It wasn't my original plan, but after driving up Corliss Hill Road before the run, I thought it might give a better shot at getting to the high point while remaining in the woods rather than the road side where you would definitely have to go up driveways/onto private property to get the high point. So, there was a bit of a clearing just on the left before exiting the Haverhill logging property so I bushwhacked straight up the hill there. I dithered around in the woods, trying to stay out of sight of the houses, but get as high as possible and achieved this in a corner of the woods just behind some old trees/etc. dumped back there. None of it was posted so at least I wasn't blatantly on private property (although checking GIS tax maps later, I was on empty lots as well as the back of the lots on Corliss Hill Road). Just to be complete, I also ran out to and up to the high point on Corliss Hill Road. This is the best you can do without blatantly going on private property (i.e. up driveways or across lawns/fields). There is definitely higher ground here, but with all the houses on the top, it is unclear where the actual top originally was before the construction.
