Ascent Trip Report

First attempt was to come in from Jefferson Rd to the N but access was blocked by private residence. Ended up parking on the side of Farnum Pike near an electric transfer station. We followed the power line trail up the hill for about 0.6 miles and then left the trail and bushwhacked into a small wooded meadow to bag the peak. The peak is very rounded and hard to pinpoint so just trust your GPS. The hike had a nice view of the surrounding countryside.
