Ascent Trip Report

I followed the excellent directions in the trip report by Michael Schwartz on the County High Pointers web pages. The area is for sale and looks like some recent construction or excavation has taken place with possible implications for future access. The high point appears to be near an old radio tower. I wandered around a bit just to make sure. Like many Pa. county high points, not an exceptionally scenic area, although the drive up through Franklin along the Allegheny River gorge certainly was.
