Ascent Trip Report

An moderate trail climb eastbound ..... 1.2 miles RT.

I didn't know that there was a trail to the summit so I bushwacked from the southwest Herlihy Road. The wack was easy, beautiful open forest, large trees, in this whole area.
I came upon the orange blazed Finger Lake trail at the summit .... it headed west so I decided to check-out/descend this trail, and it is "the" route for this Hill. So what I describe here is the directions for the Finger Lake Trail (FLT) to the summit and not my bushwack route.

From the junction of #91/80 in the village of Apulia we went east on 80 for 1 mile to a right onto Herlihy Road, 1.2 miles south the pavement ends with a small parking on the right for the Finger Lake Trail. This is the TH.
The westbound FLT leaves the road 40 yards further up the road on the right, the eastbound (my route) is across the parking area.

The orange blazed FLT climbs/winds easterly about .6 miles directly to the wooded summit, a green box Canister is attached to the tree on the right. I signed the Register, last to sign-in .... 8/3/14, Jennifer Wilson and Joe Westschyer. No views, a fire pit is near-by, I forgot to look for the Fabius BM.

EACH CAREFUL STEP ALONG THE BYWAY
AND MORE, MUCH MORE THAN THIS
I DID IT MY WAY" ............ frank sinatra
