Ascent Trip Report

Follow Midwood Farm Road until its end with the pond on your left and you'll see a "Do Not Enter" street sign. There, the road turns into a 1 lane dirt road/track. In 200 feet it will open up to where you can park your car. It's 0.8 miles from there to the summit. At about .3 miles in I accidentally veered left too early onto an incorrect footpath. The actual veer left is just past that footpath. Just keep in mind that the entire trail to the summit is wide enough for a quad and you'll be good. Highpoint is marked by 4 cement footings.
