Ascent Trip Report

After leaving Ebright Azimuth, I made my way down I-95 to Iron Hill, just off Exit 1. It is in a county park, but the summit is within view of some homes, unfortunately. I hiked the very short trail from the disc golf course. A water tower lies just off the yellow blazed trail. The high ground is right near the tower. I wandered around the woods for a bit to make an enjoyable 40 minute hike out of it. You can get up and back from the "summit" from the park in 5-10 minutes if you just go there and back. After Iron Hill I headed to historic New Castle to see some sights and then on to the Delaware County, PA high point... Pictures from the trip
