Ascent Trip Report

This was kind of a neat hike. Stopped here on the way to Teterboro airport for some business. The main red circle point (middle candidate) is easily reached from the road...just pull over, there is all sorts of development going on and there were several cars along various pull offs. For the north point, I stopped at the new Hilltop House...a big block of condos. The road to the north was gated, but there are trails and the road to follow up. This was the old sanitarium grounds and a lot of the old walls and foundations that can still be found. Pretty cool to take a few minutes and wander about. The southern candidate is in a vertible warren of residential roads and is likely the lowest of the three points.
