Ascent Trip ReportFrom the junction of NW Cornell Road and NW Skyline Blvd., drive 2.5 miles north on Skyline and turn right into signed and paved NW Wind Ridge Drive. Park off to the side, avoid blocking the gated woods road to the right, and stroll up the paved, gated driveway to the water tank, only about 1/10 mile uphill. I concur with other reporters that high ground is now on the berm between the tank and large private home built on the original highpoint. Elevation on the berm is probably about 1170 and is still higher than anything else in the vicinity. Nice views to the west from Skyline Drive and from the cemetery across the road from Wind Ridge Dr. For prominence fans, note NW Prominence Ct. on the west side of Skyline Dr.
