Dennis Schvejda's ascents on 03/06/2012

County House Mountain

I followed Brom Vermeulen's advice (Thank you!)... Read his trip report for details. After reading all the trip reports, seemed the best route, and had no issues. First County House and then Oxford.

Although not the greatest of hikes from a recreational standpoint, I'm grateful these lands are protected as open space. I would offer that winter is the best season (if there's no snow!) to attempt this hike. The sun falls on the forest floor, and you have great visibility. Contrast that with summer - fighting your way through thick growth, with the addition of heat, humidity and insects!

The find of the day was a deer skull with antlers... one of the pics.
