Ascent Trip Report

ON RT. 8 south from US 30 take route 208 (right) until it crosses Middle Run Rd. Continue for 1.2 mi. The high point is on the right. I parked in a field (no one home at nearby house) on what I presume was private property but not posted. My GPS said it was 0.15 mi. to the clearly visible high point. One fence to cross. Given the relatively low elevation, the panoramic view from the top pleasantly surprised me.
