Ascent Trip Report

A trail walk with a short bushwack ...... .6 miles, 25 minute RT.

From Junction of Bloomfield(CR506)/Pompton(Hwy23), we drove east on Bloomfield for .12 miles to a right on Sunset Avenue, .12 miles left (south) on Afterglow Avenue, at .93 miles Afterglow turns right on Ravine Road, we parked on this corner.
From this corner a trail heads south (becomes a wide track) and in a short 250 yards comes to a cross-track. I turned right (westerly and continued 150 yards to a height-of-land. There are 2 Candidate High Points here, one is to the left of where I was standing and the other 70 yards to the right (northerly) in open bush, which I chose as my HP, GPS 40.811519,-74.23631.

"THERE IS NO SILENCE LIKE THAT OF THE MOUNTAINS."
