Ascent Trip Report

- I planned to start hiking at Briery Branch Gap, but FS-85A is better than I expected, any passenger car can reach 4302.
- Ascent stats include Flagpole and Meadow BM (but did not find it).
- I stayed with the abandon road just below 3920 to find the abandoned house just above 3920.
- Once the road deadends at Chestnut Ridge trail, turn left to look for higher ground.
