Ascent Trip Report

I followed the rough 4WD road upward at lower junctions leading to a wooded summit with limited views, searched for and found Summit Benchmarks (4 total) but gave up on a thick bushwhack to a ledges lookout 200 yards southwest of summit (AMC Maine Mountain Guide: 7th Edition) not wanting to return too, too late to my Blackwoods Campground Site and next day's start homeward.
