Looking up the road to Mt. Agassiz
Route: Auto road and herd path combination
On my way to a presentation in Lancaster, I stopped in Bethlehem to check out Mt. Agassiz.
We generally took the old auto road to the top, using a herd path to bypass a few sections. It wasn't particularly scenic by any means, however the views from the summit vista were tremendous. We avoided going to the highpoint, as the summit is now a private residence (polite foot traffic welcome).

Directions to trailhead: Take Route 142 southwest from Bethlehem. The road to Mt. Agassiz will be on the left, just prior to the height of land (just after Mt. View Lane). There is some room to park on the side of Route 142.
