Vista Point?
I've tried to find the unmarked trail to the Vista Point that is shown on the Mt Olive Township trails map:  http://www.mtolivetwp.org/file/Map%205.%20Mt.Olive_Trails0809_BuddLake.pdf I have not found it.  There are tons of thorn bushes in their that make it not worth the effort.  I may try to go back with some clippers.  If anyone knows where the trail is, let me know.
