Ascent Trip Report

To make this mundane "hike" a bit more interesting, I went down to the creek (Sawmill Branch) on the USGS map west of the public park and hiked up and across the public park and ballfields. Then explored around inside the large closed contour nobody was around as it was afterhours; the other candidate was off the public roads in the woods. The closed contours of these two candidates are large flat areas of very similar elevations . I am not sure how these location coordinates were set or verified.
