Ascent Trip Report

Orchard at end of road seemed alive yet deserted, not even "Rottweiler protected," retraced steps to orchard's edge beginning my ascent by mostly open woods and roads up to a final bushwack at tote road's end peaking in the arc of an eastward trending road (found cairn on a large boulder with trail centered arms east pointing at my exit onto this final road with a summit clearing immediately northward); I minimized bushwacking on my return trying to follow footprints along roads back to my Shackley Hill Road trailhead.
