Ascent Trip Report

Went up the road within the "Homestead Campground" which appears in reality to be less of a campground and more of a trailer park. High point at the top of the hill behind the trailers. Parked at one that was for sale and walked back into the woods. BM is maybe 100 feet behind the development. No views from BM or trailer park but some of the area roads have nice vistas, particularly Robbins Hill Rd near the observatory, southwest of the high point. Can see Chautauqua Lake from there, which incidentally is a place I spent a lot of time in my childhood.
