Ascent Trip Report

A road/trail climb to 2 peaks .... 2 miles, 50 minutes RT.

We found our way to the village of Rarden, junction of #73/772 (just east of the Adams/Scioto County Line) and drove east on 772 for 3.2 miles to a right turn on Big Bear Creek Road, 1.9 miles east turned right on Mt Hope Road, 1.6 miles south turned left onto Crabtree Cemetery Road, 1 mile east arrived at a gated service road on the left, parked here this was my TH. The HP is to the north.

I walked the service road north about .6 miles to the very north end of the flat northeast-southwest ridge.

AREA 2 (RADIO TOWER) ... the service road makes a hairpin left turn and heads southwest 300 yards to the summit at the very south end of the ridge, site of a fenced-in Communication Tower with great views to the south and west.

SCIOTO COUNTY HIGH POINT .... a wide trail leaves the north end of the ridge and goes north for 40 yards where it turns/descends steeply left (right-of-west) 150 yards to a col, then climbs 250 yards to the obvious wooded summit with partial views through the trees this time of the year.
