Ascent Trip Report

Late yesterday had trouble reaching, finding trailhead. Radar Road in East Haven is a gated private and rough road still two miles from trailhead, while the road entrance in Victory can be confused with River Street at a four-way intersection just beyond actual left to the Victory Town Clerk Road leading to Trailhead. This turn is 7.5 miles along the "Gallup Mills 8" road sign from Rte 114N at 1.5 miles past East Burke. Twice briefly walked in twilight and dark with GPS along the way to East Mtn and decided an AM start would do me better. Bright and early walk, barely run, and geocache on a warm enough sunny day with what small bit remains of last storm's melting snow and ice and Radar Station too. The last two miles of road beyond town and barracks makes for a clean bicycling still well asphalted track, know I enjoyed running down to the flat of Radar Town.
