      I finally manage to re-subscribe to CWDG this morning!

      I have hiked past the Locher Cabin up to Hauser Ridge many times with rangers. Much of the terrain is grassy with some rock outcroppings, then there is the climb to top of the ridge. Obviously crops along ridge can vary by season.

      The "Rock Ledge" is another less-visited site, which I documented on my CWRT website: http://home.comcast.net/~schuylkillcwrt/

      By Doubleday gun positions, are you referring to the J. Poffenberger Hill location? The farm is now open and easily accessible.

      There are plenty of other sites to visit, depanding on itinerary and time available.
