Ascent Trip Report

I used this address to get to the highpoint:

2635 Shippensburg Road
Biglerville, PA 17307

I parked on the side of the road and started walking down the drive way. The homeowner drove into the driveway when I was about 50' down it. I walked back and talked with him. I explained I just wanted to go stand on the high point for the county. He was not aware the high point was in his yard. I showed him the map and he asked some more questions. After that he happily allowed me access to the high point. I walked down and bagged it. Took some pictures. I said thanks and bye on my way out. He asked me where the high point precisely was and I showed him where I thought it was. On my walk back to my car his wife got home and was very nice and talkative. We talked about the high point, the AT (which crosses Shippensburg Road about a .25 miles back from their house), and a local ice cream store for through hikers. She was very nice.
