Ascent Trip Report

To get here, I turned off Independence Hwy, just south of intersection with Metge Road, but going west rather than east. I drove past a couple houses to where the road became dirt and then turned sharply left. I walked over to the high point, which was on the closer side of the Blackberry Hedge. The grass and weeds I walked over were short, probably having been cut recently to the edge of the Blackberries. A enjoyed a few of the Blackberries that had turned sweet. I didn't see any "no trespassing" signs, but neither did I see any signs that this was public land.
