Ascent Trip Report

Thought I had found a short cut to a different trailhead and turned the car onto Dunbar rd off of Hwy 45. Wheeled the car down a sand road for 5 minutes, turned right at the T intersection and parked at a trail marked Lookout Mountain thinking that was my start. After a trek up a winding ATV path for 15 minutes I found myself looking out over a nice panoramic view of Northumberland... including the CoHP probably 800m away on the other side of a wooded valley ??.

Went back to try again on the weekend using Derek's directions. Added Lookout Mountain to peakbagger for reference. It's a few meters lower but still a worthwhile hike.
