Ascent Trip ReportTGE waited in the car while I did a trail run to the top of Scottish. Pretty easy trail to follow. There were yellow, then red blazes and parts were marked "Asbury Trail." Searching for the origins of this trail name, I found this posted by an ET Hiker on EverTrai: the "historic Asbury Trail which was named after Methodist Bishop Asbury who traveled this area in 1810 to minister to settlers in the area"
Thanks for the info ET!
On top, I couldn't find a cairn or benchmark.
