Ascent Trip Report

Access to the northern point has changes since previous trip reports. The route from the east side past the cemetery is now posted and leased to a hunting club. We were able to find a reasonable alternative (1.5 miles roundtrip with 160 net gain) after asking at the farm-shop further south on the east side of Range Road. Let me know if you need more details. Don't go this route without permission.

The southern point (Tallyho benchmark, south of Tattersall Drive) remains as described prevously. We walked up from the cul-de-sac and did not see any residents.

Stats below include both points.

Conspicuous as these hills are, I found it odd that they are not named on the map. I did find references online that suggest the names are Mayfield Mountain and Jenkins Mountain.
