Ascent Trip Report

Walked from open field to summit to search for the Hawk Mt Geo marker. Used a sub-meter accuracy GPS and quickly found the SW foundation of the old fire tower under brush, leaves and dirt. After cleaning off the approx. 2' x 2' foundation, no marker was visible. Poking around on the top, I found a soft spot, cleaned it out and saw the marker about 2" below the surface. I had created waypoints for 2 of the 3 reference markers but was unable to locate them probably due to briers and leaf cover.
