Ascent Trip Report

Both Areas are walk up, located 7.5 miles east of Salisbury in Parsonsburg.

AREA 1 ..... Behind the church in a cemetery.
From Salisbury we found our way east on hwy 346 (7.5 miles) to Parsonsburg and to the parking lot for the Jerusalem Methodist Church. We walked to the Cemetery at rear of the church and found the HP under the clump of tall trees, in the area of the 3 Smiths grave sites.

AREA 2 ..... Yards beside a road in a new housing development.
From the church's parking lot we drove .19 miles east on 346 to a left on Parsonsburg Road, then north for 2.1 miles to a right on Democracy Road, entrance to a new housing development "Senate Heights". On the right is the obvious high ground (a landscaped ridge for 3 housing lots), at 70 yards (the second lot) is house number #8229 and on either side of its driveway are 2 spots that contend for the HP. I chose my spot at right side of driveway at GPS 38.41700, -75.46854 and on the left side at 38.41721, -75.46818.
