Ascent Trip Report

I took US 220 to the Blue Ridge Parkway entrance on the east side of Roanoke. This route offers a convenient access to Mill Mountain with a clearly marked left turn off the Parkway leading right to the top.

My GPS coordinates placed the high point under a brick building near the parking area, but a small mound near a corner of the structure of the star and adjacent to the parking area looked like it might be slightly higher, although perhaps man made. Impressive view from platform.
