Friendly Farmer.

The entrance for the access road to the mast is located at R2746782104 C and although the gravel road passes alongside farm buildings the farmer has no objections for you to drive to the mast as long as you close the one gate after you. As mentioned in the previous comment the summit is located on high ground in an adjacent field to the right of the mast as you approach.R2729382884 D.
