Ascent Trip ReportFrom Mt Zion Road, on the west side of the crest in the road, I followed an unmaintained field road to the approximate high point (using GPS). This is a location for a USGS Benchmark (Jewell), but although I found a station post I could not find the benchmark. (No one else has found it recently, either.)
I walked around the open area and in the woods in order to have found the highest point. Due to the tall grass, it's hard to be sure where that was exactly.
