6/3/2017 Number Seven (Warrensburg)

I climbed Number Seven for a second time, but by a different approach using a recently acquired chunk of state land. Parked at the end Alden Ave. I used my mountain bike for the first part of this trek. There is an initial gate and the road continues eventually to a cabin on private property. Shortly after the gate, took the jeep road on the left. Soon pass an old camping site, and then there is a short climb up to the plateau. Not the prettiest area since it's been logged over. When I was within 1/2 mile of the top, it was a short bushwhack up.

Great hike!

I was actually going to do that one yesterday, but my afternoon filled up.

I like the idea of the bike for the approach.

The bike ride wasn't too bad. There is one badly eroded spot (down to smooth rock covered with wet slime) that I had to walk up and down.
