Ascent Trip Report

Took Route 21-72 through Ironton and Arcadia, a few miles after passing through town turn right on CC - also marked for the park.

The road eventually splits, to the left is the look out tower - which isn't the high point. Keep going straight - the road becomes unpaved.

There will be a lookout deck on the right. After this is the parking area for several trails and the high point. The trail head is next to the pavallion with the Taum Sauk name on it.

Hike about a 1/3 of a mile on concrete sidewalk - two trails then go to the right and to the left is the high point. There's a bench and a large rock
