Prospect Hill is a privately-owned Christmas tree farm with about eight repeater and telecom sites on the ridge overlooking Independence, Oregon. We were able to secure one-time permission for access to this site as it was convenient to a visit with friends near Salem.

Access required working with the neighbor on where to park, climbing a gate, and identifying and securing permission from the property owner. Activating in a muddy field of Christmas trees is not the most pleasant way to practice SOTA-craft, and since there are many other one point summits that are easier to access, Prospect Hill is not recommended. 

If someone really needs to activate this peak, contact K7ATN for information on contacting the property owner.
