A pretty easy location and well visited spot I think its on the DB maps ,I go to college near by here so I come here pretty often
The first building there was part of the USCG Radio Station, they had three transmitter buildings plus an operations building and admin/barracks area, which is where the College Maintenance/Shops are at now. This is Transmitter Building One. A four engined Lockheed Super Constellation crashed just north of this building on December 24th, 1964. Many pieces of that aircraft, some quite large, remain up there on both sides of the trail. The other buildings further up are part of the old Nike Missile Control Site, not related to that lone building you first come to when hiking up there. I keep meaning to make another visit up to the Nike Site, but I can't believe how trashed they seem to be now from your photos. I haven't been there in about 10 years.
