Ascent Trip ReportOf the high points that I have located thus far, this one has much to be desired. Obviously, the state of SC has placed their $ in the outer banks, not the state's highpoint. Anyway, it's still the highpoint and we did find it.
There is ample signage along the roads to find the parking lot, but once in the lot you are on your own. It's more than obvious that one continues beyond the locked gate, but there was nothing on top to signify that you actually arrived at anything of significance. After a short search, we did stumble across the lone USGS marker. It's in the middle of the paved loop, closer to the radio tower.
High point #2 of 4 for the day is in the books!
#2 South Carolina
#3 North Carolina
