Ascent Trip Report

The eastern point likely isn't the HP, as it appears disturbed. The western HP is definitely on high ground. I took a different approach than Fred and Ben. Instead of hiking the Railroad, I took McPhaul Road (dirt) toward the high point. There are several houses along this road. After a bit, you will pass under a sign marking (I guess) the McPhaul Farm border. I intended to drive to the house and inquire, but about 100 yards past the sign, the driveway split, and I could see the HP. There was a ladder set up to go over the fence, so I parked, climbed that, and hiked the sand road toward the HP. There was a very good fence on my left, which I thought would be a problem, but after about 200-300 yards it just ended near the train tracks. From there it was a simple hike up to the HP.
