Ascent Trip Report

Combine this with Roanoke County HP since you drive right past it. From the corner leading to Roanoke Co HP, drive 2.1 miles on gravel road (still drivable by any type of car) to intersection. Park and take the straight ahead road by foot (it has a locked gate preventing car travel) up easy roadway to communications tower on top of hill. About a 1 mile hike to top.

High point may be some rocks off to the right of the tower.
