Ascent Trip Report

Took Bateman Road south from Route 62 and turned right on Longmeadow Drive. Took Longmeadow til it ended and turned right onto Rolling Hills Drive. In the cul-de-sac at the end is 18 Rolling Hills Drive. Rang the bell and a very nice man answered and I asked if I could walk to his backyard to take a picture. He kindly consented and came out through his garage to chat for a bit. He told me he had once had a person on a motorcycle come screaming up his drive and scare him before the person revealed that he had grown up there and wanted to go out back to the hill he remembered from his childhood. If you decide to go this route rather than buskwack in from the north, please be courteous and ring the bell for permission--he is a very nice man. The high point is at the back corner of the property very clearly the highest point on the property.
