Ascent Trip ReportA road/trail hike nb from Stephanie Drive ...... 2 miles, 1 hour RT.
I approached this climb from the south using the directions in Ed Wandall's TR. The purpose of this report is to add a few details.
From Dillsburg, at the south intersection of Hwy #15/74 with Sheetz Gas on corner, we zeroed our odo.
0.00M ... we left the intersection at Sheetz Gas, southbound on #15.
0.43M ... turned right on Mountain Road
1.18M ... stayed left on Mountain Road.
2.42M ... turned right on St George Drive
2.67M ... right turn on Stephanie Drive
2.80M ... reach top end of Stephanie and parked van, this was my TH. Straight ahead a dirt road continues to the crest of the mountain.
I walked the dirt road as it winds/climbs northwesterly (moderately steep in places) .75 miles to the crest of the mountain, where I picked-up a wide trail heading west along the crest .25 miles to the summit area. Here I turned left and bushwacked 20 yards to the HP with a cairn, my GPS 40.09241,-77.08236. If you continue west on the trail for 50 yards you'll come to a trail junction).
