Ascent Trip ReportAn easy walk up on a rocky road ...... 0.6 miles, 20 minute RT.
We approached from the south after climbing in the Camden Hills State Park. We found our way to hwy junction #3/220 at north end of Liberty and traveled north on #220 (passed Center Road and Berry Road on the right) for 6.75 miles to a right turn onto a wide gravel road. At 100 feet on the left is a large brown garage signed "Frye Mountain Widlife Management Area".
We drove through the open gated road and traveled east for .6 miles to a right turn, then south .9 miles to a T junction where we turned left and continued 1.1 miles to the TH on the right side. The trail, somewhat hidden, is an old unused rocky road blocked off with huge boulders.
I hiked .3 miles up the road to the summit, it dead-ends at a rock face and a trail continues the last 100 feet. The rocky wooded summit has a US Geological Survey Marker, 2 old Fire Tower foundations and it offers no views.
"IN THE END, IT'S NOT GOING TO MATTER HOW MANY BREATHS YOU TOOK ...... BUT HOW MANY MOMENTS TOOK YOUR BREATH AWAY."
