Ascent Trip Report

An easy road/bushwack to 3 areas .... 1 mile, 45 minutes RT.

I used Bill Schuler's TR for the driving directions to the TH and found our way to the 4-county-corners (Oscoda/Alcona/Iosco/Ogemaw)
The dirt road 200 yards south of this 4-corners is gated, on a tree is house #7930", this dirt road driveway had signs of little usage. The house to the south of this driveway is #7890.

I walked the dirt road, east-northeast, .25 miles to its end (at the north end of a clearing). A small house signed "Brightmoor Oaks" is on the right at the start of the clearing, no one around on this day. The north end of this clearing is basically the center of these 3 areas.
a) I went west 140 yards to AREA 1 (44.50810,-83.88458), past a white shed onroute.
b) North at 35 yards is the AREA 2 (44.50861,-83.88278) amid small saplings.
c) East at 200+ yards is AREA 3 (44.50811,-83.88074).

The woods are open deciduous, easy going. All 3 HPs are obvious.
