Ascent Trip Report

Ky. 1526 off I-65 is Brooks Hill Rd. I parked at the top on the right near a tower. My hp coordinates (from LOJ) pointed to the back yard of a house across the road, but there's also a small mound on the same side of the road as the tower. I tried both and couldn't tell which was higher. They are less than 50 yards apart, so If you go here try both. GPS is elevation is often inaccurate, especially on a cloudy day, but I got readings higher than the elevation estimated here.
