Ascent Trip Report

We parked at the mailbox and gave our $10 donation. There was a no trespassing sign on the old road that leads to the old house. So instead we walked through the farm house area. As the road was about to end we walked through the field to the old house to pick up the normal route.

It turns out the neighbor is the one with all the no trespassing signs and is in process of installing a fence along the property line. If you stay to the left of this property line/fence you should be fine. Eventually a use trail will get worn in. There were some faint tire tracks, probably from someone who drove up to the old house.
