Ascent Trip Report

From the intersection of PA 88 and 21, I took 21 west about 200 yards, then left on Hartley Rd. to an intersection with Turkey Knob Road. Nice views toward the Laurel Highlands. The environmental impact of Pa's. natural gas boom can be clearly seen on this route with cross country cleared construction swaths for pipelines and roads quite overwhelming.
