Ascent Trip Report

I took PA. 144 North from Moshannon. At slightly over 17 mi. (and slightly beyond where previous high pointers apparently began ascent) I took a sharp left on Jews Run Rd. In 0.8 mi. there's a cleared slope on the left where I parked at a stone barrier a couple of hundred feet in from the road. At the top of the slope look for a partially overgrown track on the left. Using my GPS I was able to follow the meandering track to within 250 feet of the high point, shortening the unpleasant bushwhack through heavy brush at the end.
