Ascent Trip Report

Parked at electric station on 196 like others but didn't find the pink tape trail Brandon Hitz mentioned. Some cool caves near the top and also the remains of someone's long term campsite. Saw an owl for the first time in the wild! Came down via the south route.. bushwhack is a bit less friendly this direction (woods are very open from the east, slightly less so from the south). However, there is a "road" on the map marked as "Tobyhanna State Park".. while this road isn't actually driveable by any vehicle I've ever seen, and has a locked yellow gate in front, it is a nice, walkable path that does about half the bushwhack for you.
