Ascent Trip Report

Parked at the Penn Argyl High School. Bushwacked up the ridge to a path, which led to the service road. Followed road to the highpoint. My GPS showed the highpoint to be near the odd blue transmitter to the north of the high tower. Heading down, I saw a trail off the service road that led to a well maintained trail that followed the ravine down the back way to the reservoir. This is a fast way to the high point, though there are some No Trespassing signs about.
