Ascent Trip Report

A walk up a track with a short bushwack ..... 400 yards, 20 minutes RT.

From the intersection Hwy#6/Center Road(426), north side of Corry, we drove south on Center Road (through beautiful downtown of Corry) for 2.5 miles to a left on Stewart Road, .22 miles right (south) on Lindsey Hollow Road, 1.55 miles to a Grass Track on the right .... just ahead is a private driveway and mailbox #21060. We turned into the Grass Track and parked, the highpoint is straight ahead due west.

I walked the Grass Track 150 yards west to the Communication Tower, on the way the guy from House # 21060 was cutting is huge lawn, he waved at me hollering "You can drive up."
The high ground is in a small knoll to left of the Tower at 25 yards amid open woods with tall grass, I chose my spot at GPS 41.88037, 79.62932, the PB coordinates puts it in a lower spot.

I paid a visit to the friendly neighbor, he had just finished cutting his grass. "You sure have a lot of grass to cut, how long does it take you".
"Not long really, I also do my neighbors grass (pointing to the south) all in 2 hours".
We had a long chat on the highpoint which is actually on his property, he gets visitors from all over the country, he's had people from as far away as Alaska. "You are the first Canadian".
A highpointers friend.
