Ascent Trip ReportThe top of Ellison Ridge (and maybe all of it) is private land, but I visited it in the course of doing some work in the area. We reached the summit area by driving on a gated gravel road that takes you close to the top and makes tagging the summit relatively easy, but do not visit without permission. Part of the summit area has recently been graded and reseeded, so it's hard to tell whether the natural summit is still the highest point, but it is all relatively flat, and walking to the two or three candidates for highest point is not hard.
