Ascent Trip Report

I used this address:

1526 Quarry Road
Whiteford, MD 21160

I drove back Quarry road to the grassy area and parked. You cannot drive any further due to a dirt mound that has been pushed up to block the road. I road hiked back to the high point. This is a easy hike. Found the road back to an area between two large mounds beside the first pond. I climbed up to the top of the mound over a lot of loose rocks. At the top there are awesome 360 views and lots of graffiti.
