Ascent Trip Report

This is probably the nicest and easiest PEI summit. It has a prominence of 400 feet, respectable in a flat place like PEI. It is located in Queens County, 1.6 miles south of the Kings CoHP off of Route 315 (0.8 miles south of the 315/24 junction). A short, un-gated dirt road (forest on the right, fields to the left) leads shortly up to a radio tower area. I explored into the wooded higher ground to the SW for a minute and soon found the benchmark corresponding to the triangle symbol on the topo map, complete with a small marker sign. Always nice to find one of these. The land near the benchmark was noticeably higher than the nearby tower enclosure.
