Ascent Trip Report

I parked on Chinsegut Hill Road, at the beginning of the gated road leading to the hilltop. I hiked up the road, which ends at a Univ. of South Florida conference center. The conference center is a white building that resembles an old hotel or mansion. I walked to the west side of the grassy area and took in the view for a few moments. There probably aren't too many hilltop views in Florida.

I didn't see anyone else on the hill. The only sign of people was a USF truck parked next to the conference center, and a car parked along the road near the top of the hill. The road wasn't posted, but I saw a trail that spurred off the main road, and it was posted with a sign warning about how it led to state property which was off limits, which I respected.
