Ascent Trip Report

Bagged this peak while heading eastward on the Springhouse Branch Trail. This trail climbs up from campsite 71 for a couple of miles before leveling out just before this peak. Looking at my topo map I left the trail and bushwhacked through pretty open woods into a small gap to the NE of the peak, before heading a hundred feet or so SW to the summit. No markers or anything at the top. There were a *ton* of hog prints in the snow and a bunch of areas where they had been digging around so I didn't stay long!
