Ascent Trip Report

This peak is adjacent to State Game Lands 225, a few minutes north of the unincorporated community of Cocalico, Pennsylvania. There are two designated parking areas, each with room for about four vehicles. Park at the northern area and start a road walk. After about a tenth of a mile, the road turns for a short ascent to some communication towers owned by Comcast. Be aware that ascending the ridge will take you off public property. There's a clearing at the end of the gravel road; bear left into the trees and follow the ridge for about a tenth of a mile. The benchmark is located near some rocks that have been placed upright. On a clear winter day, there's a nice view to the southeast, overlooking the Lower Susquehanna watershed, and to the northeast, overlooking the Schuylkill watershed.
