Ascent Trip Report

Part of a Washington DC, Fallingwater and East Coast highpointing tour with my son.

$20 to enter the State Park (at a weekend with non-NJ licence plate), at least we got a large trash bag for our money! After a leisurely drive through the woods and past Lake Marcia we got to the tower not long before it closed - would have been upset if we'd missed the opening hours: check these on the website: before you visit. Steep and very hot climb up the internal stairs to the top, views over the Park and adjacent rolling wooded hills remarkably impressive considering the limitations of the slit-like glazed windows.
