Ascent Trip Report

Following the previous directions, I walked up the driveway, staying to the right after the driveway split. Continuing straight, I began the bushwack just as the driveway turns left. I continued north and ran in to the trail after about 50 yards. I followed the trail down to the state line marker. I agree that the HP seems a bit north of the marker, maybe 10-15 yards. The are no views, but all the leaves were down so you could see quite a ways further in through the woods. There was a light dusting of snow on the ground and it was a beautiful crisp clear day. After walking around a bit to be sure I hit the HP, I headed back. The property is now a posted construction site. Once that project is completed access may change, but hopefully with permission we will still be able to visit.
