Ascent Trip Report

Parked and began the walk at the entrance to the large dirt lot on Austin Farm Road (41°35'26.6"N 71°39'10.6"W). A deer with a long white tail was startled by my presence and galloped directly to the woods where I would bushwhack. It's a really dense bushwhack, and barely any perceptible elevation gain. Made it to the creepy abandoned trailer and cars, where the alleged highpoint is. It's really hard to say where the true highpoint is exactly, so take your pick and call it a day.
