Ascent Trip Report

I used the following address to get to the trailhead.

615 Big Knob Road
Rochester, PA 15074

I parked on the north side of the road right where Mellon Drive starts on the south side. I walked up the hill to the top thought the trees. With all the leaves off the trees this was really easy (expect for the steeper parts had all the leaves making them slick). The high point is very easy to find and there are no views from the top. It took 12 minutes to go up and back down to the car.
