Ascent Trip Report

From Pa. 235 I took Shade Mountain Road 1.3 mi. to a parking spot for the Diamond Trail. I headed north for a quarter mile to an intersection then right for another quarter mile or a bit more. The highest GPS altitude reading I got was about 250 feet south of the trail. On the way back I checked out the other high contour with another chp contender. When my GPS told me I was crossing the corner of this contour, I had come down about 10-12 feet. I wandered into the underbrush, but I didn't see anything around me that looked more than 2-4 feet higher than the trail. So, the more easterly of the two points seems like the probable chp.
