Ascent Trip Report

Drive up to an architecturally interesting Greek Orthodox Church. Easy access off Saint Stephens School Road, up the signed road, and taking the left fork to the church.

You can take the right fork if you want, but you'll be stopped at a gate for a military installation. There is a missile here (!) which doubles as a virtual geocache.

Locating the exact highest point here is kind of a headache due to all the buildings (and half the land is inaccessible) so just stick to the church parking lot and you'll be fine. It's pretty flat up top ... not much of a "peak" to be found here, despite being one of the most prominent points in the whole county; walking around on a quiet day you might find some very nice views, though!

Heading out from here, I took the opportunity to snag another peak that's normally off limits, so ...

Next stop: Rob Roy Hill
