Ascent Trip Report

Called "Fisk Knob" on sign for the Kent County Park that this peak is located in - it's really more of a local high point. The Fisk No 2 BM is set in a block. The "summit" is open so there are decent views of the surrounding lands - though there really isn't anything to see! You can either walk the short way on the narrow dirt path up the slope (which my 5-yr old daughter was able to climb with no difficulty) or around on the paved surface (the drive is gated so you can't drive it). We walked up the path and down the paved road.

The park is very small - contains only the county HP - and a few picnic tables. No play structures or other recreational equipment are present.
