Hike of Crum Hill  Sucess!

I parked on Bliss Rd and entered the snowmobile trail at the junction of Bliss Rd and Tilda Hill Rd - there was an arrow sign posted on a tree as a marker. The trail was overgrown in sections but passable. When I reached the maximum altitude of the trail I realized I would have to bushwhack through moderately dense forest. So, I left the trail to the left going uphill and I shortly came to the service road that is used by the power company. I came out of the brush pretty much right across from Tower 13, went around and climbed to the actual summit with a rock cairn at the top.

I didn't bother doing the 2nd summit since LIDAR has confirmed that the one with the cairn is higher.

Fortunately I marked the place where I had come out of the brush so I was able to re-enter at the same point. However, I found that there was actually another snowmobile trail on Crum Hill which at this point runs somewhat parallel but to the north and east of the one I had ascended on. I followed this back down until - checking on my GPS - it started to diverge from being parallel to the first snowmobile trail. So, I bushwhacked through the forest - much easier this time - to the west and rejoined the route I had ascended on. I followed this back down to Tilda Hill Rd.
