Ascent Trip Report

From US 322 east of State College I turned right on Bear Meadows Road. Just past the trailhead parking for Rothrock State Forest I turned right on Laurel Hill Rd. Left on Bear Gap Rd. about a mile past the turnoff for the Little Flat fire tower (worth a short detour--it sits atop a P1000 peak). I parked in a parking area about 100 yards north of the intersection with Gettis Ridge Rd. (gated) which took me to within 250 feet of my GPS coordinates leaving a short bushwhack through heavy underbrush. Generally a flat area, hard to tell where the true highpoint is. The Peakbagger listed elevation is 2400. I got GPS readings in the 2420s.
