Ascent Trip Report

Flew to MKE and rented a car to hit the Midwest Lakes Area high points. Charles Mound was fifth of 5 for this trip. Drive to the trailhead is very straight forward. The HP is located in the middle of a working farm. This HP is only accessible on certain days (usually the first Saturday and Sunday of summer months only !!!) Check with highpointers club and other sources... The road/trail to the top is very straight forward. The view is quite good.
