Ascent Trip Report

I parked at 476 Sheets Rd and hiked up a wide well graded roadway, found homeowner doing yard work who invited me to continue on to the height via drive's now old trail continuing to within feet of Radio Tower Peak. On my way back, we talked about hiking and he told me about his home's possibly, maybe highest home views in PA. He offered an invitation to county highpointers to reasonably park at his driveway's end for this summit's access. I've included a GPS track & waypoints in my report on Laurel Hill.
