Ascent Trip Report

All previous directions were still accurate.
Coming from the North, me and Fred parked in the lot of the school. We simply walked along the road to where the three oak trees were still present. I believed the highpoint to be directly at the base of the southernmost tree. Just a gentle rise in a field, not a sight at all compared to Christie.
AREA 2: The Peach Tree Trail Cul-de-Sac is also where I believe the 2nd area to be. Everything around seemed to slope up to that point, there is nothing in the cul-de-sac, just a grassy plain with a simple bump in the middle. While not a physically impressive highpoint, we did enjoy seeing the town of Fenton. We chose not to go to Livingston on this trip as my friend does not like attending trips to areas where we have to get permission to go to.
