Ascent Trip Report

From Raritan Basin HP (see its TR for driving directions) we drove Indian Spring Road back to Smithtown Road, then right .31 miles to a right on Crease Road, .19 miles left on Bridle Lane, .25 miles left on Cher Lane, 100 yards left on Karen Place then 60 yards right on Belle Court and to its cul-de-sac. The HP is left of house #11.

I went to house #11, Marc and His dog Gilbert were very friendly and showed me around. I chose a spot behind his back shed GPS 40.87663,-74.77664.
Marc was well aware of this HP, he told me that his neighbor, who works for the NJ Wildlife Management, said that this is the highest house in Morris County. He has outstanding views when the leaves are down.
