Ontario County Highpoint Trip Report
Date: July 12, 2004
I drove the Honda to about 2050 feet elevation on Frost Hill Road.
I bushwhacked up the hill to it's top, and then used NAD27 UTM 18 (299934 E, 4731391 N)
value from topozone.com to navigate south on a large, flat, tree-covered hill top.
The GPS came in handy here.
I passed the posted south end of the H. Kuehne property and
found faint and overgrown woods "road" mentioned by Mike Schwartz.
Once I reached the topozone target, the ground back to the north
seemed a bit higher and I settled on a stump about 30 feet east of the woods "road" as the HP.
I left a baggie in a hollow on top of the stump and built cairn on top of this.
The cairn is visible from the "road". About 20 feet to the north of the cairn
I found a fallen white survey sign.
I set it up but it will fall over again soon.
About 20 feet north of the sign is a 3 or 4 inch diameter vertical pipe
filled with cement, with a nail in it, probably a survey marker.
A smaller vertical pipe is also in this area.
At the cairn I had 25-foot GPS accuracy - poor due to trees.
The GPS unit read (42° 42.671' N, 77° 26.572' W) at 2,292 feet.
Going back to the car was a bit confusing and I came out on to the road
a couple hundred yards downhill from where I entered.
