Ascent Trip Report

Parked at the Snow Farm Vineyard and met the owner and asked permission. They were excited to have a "high pointer" visit as the neighbor has been claiming their property (the house) is the high point on the island. I explained that is manmade and doesn't count which made her very happy. She happily granted me permission and told me the route to follow into the woods and up.

13:22 - Depart the parking lot
13:34 - summit (obvious high point, but no marker)
13:45 - Back at the parking lot

Stopped in to the "tasting room" and bought a bottle of "Snow White" wine. ;-)
