Ascent Trip Report

An easy open field walk southbound ..... 400 yards RT.

Bob Schwab's TR still applies, this TR updates the visit. I agree with Schwab's conclusion that Area 2 is not a contender, in fact it does not need to be visited.

Kansas Road crests just north of Cunningham Road, the COHP is to the east of this crest and is very obvious, at the second fence line with a lone tree. This land is owned by the farm to its north at #9358 Kansas Road.

We first went to the neat white house at the left side of the crest, only to be told by the nice lady that the land belongs to mailbox #9358 (across the road, a short distance north on Kansas Road).
There are 2 mailboxes at #9358. We drove up the driveway and went to the first house at the left (another small house is just ahead on the right). The lady who answered the door with 3 small children at her coat tail, knew about the HP and gave me permission to proceed.

We parked at the road. I walked 50 yards up driveway #9358 to where there is a large opening in the fence to the right of the driveway. I turned right (south) and climbed the open field 150+ yards directly to the obvious HP.
The second area can be seen to the northeast at a much lower elevation. I ignored it.

Prior to coming here we visited Coshocton COHP. We went to Area 3 only to find an unharvested corn field. Will have to go back. We moved on to Ashland COHP.
