Ascent Trip Report

Mt Cresson Forest has a nice looping blue-blazed trail system, I enjoyed seeing a group of joggers in running ascent while plodding my steep descent back to a rail trail junction with Matthews Road, my actual TH. The true forest trailhead is located at a short side road just south past the Power Line crossing of Matthews Road. Peak is at N 42° 53.621 W 072°17.258 with "geocaching.com" information leading me to its developing trail system.
