Ascent Trip Report

Walk-up/bushwack from Lyman Lookout Road ...... 150 yards, 15 minutes RT

From Wilmington we traveled south on I95 to exit 1A, where we drove south on 896 for .93 miles to a right on Old Baltimore Pike, .12 miles right on Lyman lookout Road, which enters a fairly new subdivision and ends as a large loop. We went clockwise around the loop for .5 miles (from Old Baltimore Pike) to a grass driveway on the left (just before house #67) which leads to a Water Tower.
We walked the grass driveway 50 yards to the fenced-in Water Tower. The highground is in the flat wooded area just east of the Tower, nothing obvious, I bushwacked/stomped the whole area.

From here we moved-on south to Sussex County HP.
