|Date:||Thursday, July 20, 2017|
|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Motorized Transport to Trailhead:||Car|
| Elevation:||1280 ft / 390 m|
Ascent Trip ReportParked at a wide spot just before the gate on Bald Hill Rd. I actually saw a State Police vehicle (maintenance?) coming out of the gate as I putting on my boots. The driver didn't appear to have any issue with me being there, but he might have assumed that I was just visiting the house across the road from where I was parked. There are no "no trespassing" signs on the gate.
It was a quick hike up the paved road to a house (?) near the summit. The actual highpoint appears to be in the woods to the north of the house about 50 yds. I touched all of the potential spots as there are two or three based on my estimate by eye. I also touched a spot in the "back yard" of the house that was higher than the surrounding area, but according to my GPS data is lower than the points in the woods.
I followed the road back to the car.
