Ascent Trip Report

This is the least appealing of the 5 PEI peaks—nasty, brutish, but short. From Charlottetown, take the Trans-Canada Highway 1 east for 17 miles and turn left on Route 210. Follow that east for 1.5 miles and then turn south on Route 24 for 8 miles to Route 315. Turn left on 315 and in about 0.8 miles park on the shoulder, where a very overgrown road heads NW into the woods. As Mike Schwartz reported, this is a very indistinct area with very thick brush. The road passes some metal pipe junk and peters out. I thrashed around a bit and found the highest ground to be a hogsback ridge on the north side of the area, covered with almost impenetrable low dogs-hair forest. The bushwhacking here is not fun and there is little to recommend this spot. The area seems like is was disturbed for a mine of some sort but is now abandoned.
