Ascent Trip Report

From Eagle Cliff summit: Took Eagle Cliff Rd to Eagle Cliff Descent Path down to Short Woodland Drive right to Long Woodland Drive then short bushwhack down ridge to Old Minnewaska Drive. Picked up the Overcliff Rd and hiked that to start of short bushwhack up to the top of the ridge where I found an unmarked trail that took me right to the high point. Great views of Sky Top and Eagle Cliff from here.
