This station is located in the Pine Lake section of the Delaware State Forest. To reach the station from the intersection of State Route 507 and Beaver Dam Road north of Greentown, follow Beaver Dam Rd. southeast for 1.55 mi to a gated woods road on the left (the Beaver Dam Trailhead, trail marker no. 120). Follow this trail northeasterly for 0.5 mi then easterly for 0.3 mi, then bushwhack approximately 500 feet directly to the mark atop a low hill.
Station recovered in good condition.
This second order triangulation station is located in the Pine Lake section of the Delaware State Forest, roughly 2.0 airline miles northeast of Greentown. A gated woods road (Beaver Dam trailhead, marker #120) begins at Beaver Dam Road (T-389), directly across from benchmark LY1179. The trail leads northeasterly (about 0.5 miles) through a DCNR “deer exclosure” and then easterly (about 0.3 miles) into another “deer exclosure” where, after a short bushwhack southeasterly (about 0.1 miles), the station can be reached atop a low hill. The station mark and two reference marks were found as described. At the station a Garmin GPSmap76 receiver with active remote antenna was used to record WAAS-corrected coordinates which were identical (within 0.001 minutes) to the adjusted coordinates listed on the NGS datasheet. The station mark and both reference marks are well exposed and in good condition, and the stamped designations are legible.
