Ascent Trip Report

Today is the start of a 19 day trip County High Pointing in Ohio and Maryland, to hopefully complete the two States. The plan includes some miscellaneous Peakbagging en route besides visiting family in Welland, Ontario.
We purposely timed the trip for after the harvest ..... however from what we saw today in NY State this appears not to be the case, only about 50% of the fields seem to be harvested. Got out fingers crossed.

We visited 4 peaks today all as per this one only TR.

COEY HILL ..... 1km, 20 minute RT.
From I81, exit 36 (Pulaski) we traveled east on CR#2 for 11.3 miles to a right turn onto CCC Road, .3 miles south turned left onto Chas Rosa Road which dead-ended at .2 miles at a sign "State Land". We parked here this was my TH.
An old woods road heads .3 miles southeast on the ridge directly to the summit area. No obvious HP and nothing interesting, all deciduous woods with no views.
A sign at the start of the woods road reads "ATV Prohibited".

BRISTOL HILL ..... .3 miles, 25 minutes RT.
This summit is inside a recycling facility and accessible to the public.
From I81, exit 34 we drove west on Hwy #104 for 4.7 miles to a left turn onto Hwy #3 (in the village of Mexico), 11.6 miles southwest (through the village of Palermo) turned right into the "Oswego County Recycling Facility" (it's 4 miles west to the city of Fulton). At .2 miles (just past the first blue building) turned right and followed the asphalt road southeast to where it turns to dirt and makes a left bend to the north. At .5 miles we arrived at the high ground 100 yards to the right, we parked here.
I wacked/stomped the area (N & S) looking for high ground, not much of a summit here and not recommended.

SORREL HILL .... .5 miles. 20 minutes RT
From Bristol Hill we found our way south to Baldwinsville and the intersection of Hwy #690, exit 2, where we traveled west on Hwy #31 for 2.3 miles to a left turn onto Connors Road, .5 miles east turned right on West Sorrel Hill Road, 1 mile south turned left on Hoag Road and in .25 miles east parked at the Overhead Power Lines (open fields all around)
I walked the Power line north .2 miles to the summit, a grass field is to the west and a harvested corn field to the east Beautiful open summit with nice views. This is a very nice area on NY State, well worth the visit.
Note that it need to be visited after the harvest.

CUDDEBACK HILL .... 1 mile, 40 minutes RT.
From the main intersection of Hwy #104/104A/370 (south of Red Creek) we drove south on #370 for 1.4 miles to the Service Road on the right (across the road is CR #267). This Service Road (gated at 100 Yards) leads .25 miles south to the fenced-in "Wayne County Water Tank" on the ridge on the east side of a huge North-South recently-harvested corn field. The summit ridge is to its north at 300 yards.
A open summit with nice views, worth the visit. Note that it needs to be visited after the harvest.
