Ascent Trip Report

Entered 9/7/2019.

Part of a walk around campus. I took the dirt road from the Orchard Hill dorms to the observatory at the summit. There's also a cell tower there. No view. Evidence of golf courses in the area. I took the chance to check out the fat bike trails around Orchard Hill and some of the surrounding paths and dorms. Eventually made my way to the rail trail extension south of campus and made it to the Norwottuck Rail Trail.
