Ascent Trip Report

Returned to bag the southern candidate for Warren County highpoint and complete the AT segment along Sunfish Pond that I did not do on my last trip. I parked atthe Douglas Trail parking lot, and hiked up the Garvey Springs Trail tp the AT south to the turquoise trail south to southern terminus, where I headed east on old fire road until I wasproximal to highpoint area. A short bushwhack north brought me to the summit. I returned via the same route until I reached the AT, where I headed south to complete an unfinished section ending just south of Sunfish Pond. I continued to the Douglas Trail where I descended to the parking lot and my car.
