Ascent Trip Report

Dogwood Rd., where I parked for peak 1678 is also old 56. It winds around a bit, crosses 286. Just past Sexton Rd. there's a stop sign with old 56 heading right and Rustic Lodge Rd. straight ahead. Peak 1556 is off to the right shortly before the road passes under 422. My topo map shows a track heading right off Rustic Lodge and shows it going nearly to the top. I didn't see it, although I think I crossed it on the mountain later. I turned right on Beck Rd. right before 422 and then right again on a dirt track through a farmer's field. I presume it's private property but it was not posted. The track took me to the edge of the woods, but you probably wouldn't want to try it if you don't have a truck or other 4wd. From the edge of the woods GPS put the hp at 0.39 mi.. The actual walk was around 0.6 on remnants of a trail.
