Stump Tavern area - There is now a sizeable housing development on North Stump Tavern. Stay to the right at the fork and park when you get a chance. Walk through the woods to the very sandy road then head toward the crest. There are now ATV tracks going all over the hill. Pick a spot and call it your own.

This is a state Wildlife Management Area area, so it 1) shouldn't be developed; and 2) should be avoided in hunting season.

Tick Hill - The undergrowth was a bit heavier that I had expected but the HP was otherwise obvious. I am at a loss to understand why this large area between two developments does not contain a house. Just look up and say, "Thank you".

Tower Hill - Walked up the driveway to get permission but, since sleeping dogs were lying, this became a touch and go.
