8/20/17 Warner Hill (Benson hills)

Climbed this small un-named peak in the Southern Adirondacks - but I believe it may be Warner Hill (elev 2115 ft). It is just south of Warner Hill road and north of Tyrell Hill. No public access from the east though. I parked on Tolmantown road just north of Cameron Reservoir. I rode my mountain bike north toward Hartwell Swamp, and then around Steele mountain. After nearly five miles, the road became a messy logging road. So, I hoofed it from there the remaining mile to the peak. Some decent views from ledges on the southern face.

some pictures

What a cool find!

Rather circuitous route, but the views were nice!

Another bike-n-hike special.

The road isn't that bad for driving with high clearance AWD vehicle. Could shorten the trip considerably.

Though someone told me that the left branch that leads to Tannery road is flooded with six inches of water.

I could definitely see where the Hartwell Swamp outlet could be flooded at Tannery/Tomantown Rd. The water was up to the roadway when I was there last fall. A couple more well placed sticks and it would be well over the road.
