Ascent Trip Report

3.5 mile run up Poplar, Poplar East, and Poplar West. Parked just below the closed gate to the upper road of Forest Lake beach area and ran straight up an old, possibly unmaintained trail. It brought me to an ATV trail which brought me to the top. I then continue on along the ATV trails to the top of East Poplar and then over the other side and down to Poplar Road. I ran up Poplar Road a bit until encountering an ATV trail going into the woods and up to West Poplar Hill. West Poplar appears to be on the Calitri Conservation Land in Pelham according to this map:
The trail up from Poplar Road is the most direct route to the hill, but is not marked on that map but is very easy to find since it has stop signs for ATV crossing of the road (despite the map saying off road vehicles are not allowed).
I ran around the trails a bit at the top, stopping when it looked like it was going down hill and definitely in the opposite direction. I then ran back to Poplar Road, this time running directly across it and up the trail and aimed towards Forest Lake. I took a couple of side trails shortly to explore those along the way and then checked out the beach area when I got to it and then ran the road back to the car.
