Station recovered in good condition.

This second order vertical control station is set in the top of a large outcropping boulder at the boundary of Promised Land State Park and the Blooming Grove Hunting and Fishing Club. The historical description leads only partially to the station, and errs when it refers to a State Game Lands boundary. There is no observable trail within the State Park leading from either the Telephone trail or Bruce Lake trail. However, the station can be accessed from PA Rt. 402 via Lake Laura Road and then following a trail branching to the west at N41° 19.234' W075° 09.147' leading the boundary. At the station a Garmin GPSmap76 receiver with remote active antenna was used to record WAAS-corrected coordinates which were 55 feet from the scaled coordinates listed in the NGS datasheet. The mark is well exposed, in good condition, and the stamped designation is legible. ~Rich in NEPA~
