Ascent Trip Report

Just noticed this little prominence hill in the database and had time for one last hike before sunset. I stopped where all the kids were playing little league and parked. I hiked down towards the county public area signed for some time of sustainable dumping or something but the gate was closed into the little loop that shows on the aerial. Fortunately, it seemed to be public lands and although it was not open for the intended activity, I saw no reason why a quick bushwhack would not be fine. Although this square shape parcel is fenced, most of it is a new wire fence with barb wire on the top and solid wire on the other three layers so one can easily move them aside without getting stuck. The hike up this backside of the hill keeps you from the public houses and property on the backside and thus, the it felt open to public. I saw no signs otherwise. I did not hike down near the houses and quickly strolled back down to the car. Short sweet. So so views but another nice stoll in the woods getting more mileage on my pedometer and more gain for the heart!
