Ascent Trip Report

This is a nice little climb. We entered to the right of some property that was marked with no trespassing in what I believe was public access. Walked around the perimeter and then up the hill. Even got a little steep. Lots of poison ivy and ticks. At top there is an 4wd road. I didn't follow it to see where it connected up to, but it would probably have been a lot easier to hike up the road.
