Ascent Trip Report

As others did, I ignored the Do Not Enter sign at the end of Midwood Farms Rd and parked in the clearing where the ATV trails diverge, then started walking on the one bending to the left around the pond.

Bought a new hiking GPS last week, so it took a few minutes to be able to track satellites on the first use. Started bushwhacking northwest at the first turn in the ATV trail after the pond, which I quickly realized I probably didn't need to do, which was then confirmed when the GPS started tracking. Turns out the ATV trail actually does take you right to the top which I hadn't expected. This is a pretty nice area... there aren't many lower CoHP's I'd actually like to come back to but this is probably one of the few.
