Ascent Trip Report

I followed previous directions to the high point vicinity, but decided to try a path I found off the track up to the water tanks. Indeed the path was well worn enough that I almost expected to find a "welcome highpointers" sign. The path eventually follows the fence around the water tanks along several back yards that others have visited. I will defer to the wisdom of previous high pointers, but I'm not totally convinced that there isn't slightly higher ground just inside the locked fence around the water tanks.
