Ascent Trip Report

The North Boundary trail oddly ends in the 'saddle' between Billy Cove Knob and Browns Knob. However, the trail continues to the summit of Browns Knob. It looks as if some people have continued down the north slope of Browns Knob but I don't think there are any roads or anything of interest on that side. Some 'very' recent maintenance had been done to the trail when I was there and I'm guessing that's from the local residence that can be seen from the trail down in Billy Cove.
