Ascent Trip Report

I walked east along Forward Rd from its Jct with Crow Hill Rd, then north across fallow corn field to open woods to summit with another of New York's wind farm windmilling all about. An old wood road led back to corn field and to its watershed back down to Forward Road. The summit is bracketed with windmills towering above trees NW & SE.
