Ascent Trip Report

A drive up.

From the intersection of MD#121 and Old Baltimore Road we drove east on Old Baltimore for .9 miles to a right turn on Lake Ridge Road, large sign "Black Hill Regional Park Entrance" .... A beautiful park with a large network of multi-use trails and camping, very popular with the locals.

At 1.4 miles arrived at the crest-of-the-road with a driveway and summit to the right, capped with house #20930 .... a large plaque to one side of the house "Black Hill Gold Mine, location of open pit gold mining during 1850-1950".

"MOUNTAINS ARE THE BEGINNING AND THE END OF ALL NATURAL SCENERY." ....... john ruskin
