Ascent Trip Report

From I-68 I took Chestnut Ridge Rd. south, right on New Germany, r. on Rocky Mt. Drive. As the road bends a jeep track heads along the high tension towers right of way to a gate just past where the snowmobile trail crosses the jeep track. I walked up the track under the towers and then bushwhacked more or less on a GPS heading. On the way back I stuck closer to the ridge line (less underbrush to bushwhack through until it came close to the tower access corridor. Wooded top with no views.
