Ascent Trip Report

easy xcountry/wack stealth hike nwb ... 1M, 45 minutes RT for all 3 areas.

For the 2 northern areas at Goat City my experience was the same as that of Andy Martin and have nothing to add to his TR. There is nothing here.

For the 3rd southern area E of Medina I accessed from the S similar but different from Ken Oeser.
From Medina, JCT Main St/E Foster Av(#152), we went E on Foster for 1.25M to a grand entrance house #88 on the right. Across the road (N) is a dirt driveway that climbs to an empty lot (signs of removed buildings) and 100 yds W is a small house at a lower elevation - the HP is to the NW.
We parked at the driveway (by the road) and I walked N few hundred yds (trying to stay away from the house), then xcountry/wack 400 yds NW to the HP.
