Ascent Trip Report

A dirt road hike ..... .5 mile RT.

From the intersection of Hwy #80/91 in the village of Fabius we went east 80 for 3.4 miles to a right onto Highland Park Road, less than a mile south we arrived at the gated entrance to Highland Forest Park, gate was open. We continues south (turns to dirt).87 miles to a left turn onto a dirt road which parallels a power line (northeast), parked at 250 yards at a horse corral. This was my TH.

The Highland Forest Park has a large network of multi-use trails. I saw bikers, hikers and horses riders.

From my TH I continued/walked the dirt road northeast 300 yards to a right turn on another dirt road that leads south 150 yards to the fenced-in Communication Tower on the wooded summit, from here a trail continues south.
There is no obvious HP, I found the Benchmark "US & COAST GEODETIC SURVEY, ARAB No 1, 1948" left of the trail 20 yards from the Tower. A Witness Post Survey Marker is at 20 yards further to the south on the right side of the trail (couldn't find the BM here). No views.
