Ascent Trip Report

From 220 S. I took White Church Rd. to Evitts Creek Rd. to Blankeley Rd. Just past a picnic area on the left I found a steep unmarked trail and parked by the side of the road. The trail ascends quite steeply--300+ feet of elevation gain in a quarter mile to a gravel road. I did pass some gated tracks so it may be possible to drive up. I followed the road to the left as it curves along the ridge to the high point. The highest spot seemed to be atop some rocks just left of the road where someone built a small rock cairn. Nice views along the road. A P1k peak.
