Ascent Trip Report

Parked on the road at the county line, across from the Bethany Hills red barn described in other trip reports. The golf course appears to have been completely plowed under.

The walk through the tall grass was somewhat annoying but it was quick enough to walk up and back from the road. Did not see another person at the adjacent home or in the field. It's disappointing to hike to a high point that's in the middle of a slope.

There is an old white door laying on the ground (to cover a hole/pit, I believe) right at the place where my GPS (and my observation) shows the high point to be. I'm sure it will rot over time but it may help someone know they're in the right place.
