Ascent Trip Report

Caught this on the way back from hiking the Falls Trail in Ricketts Glen State Park. Blazing hot day, parked at the Shale Pit, headed up the service road. Went past the fire tower (closed) and followed a small trail in the southwest of the clearing. After about 50 yards it came to a concrete monument, maybe a foot off the ground and 8 inches square. This is the tri-county marker and the high point.
