Ascent Trip Report

Used Tom Layton's trip report info. The sign at the overlook reads ELK MOUNTAIN OVERLOOK ELEV 3795. Topo identifies the overlook as Lewis Fork. Regardless, the overlook is the first one encountered on the right if coming up from Deep Gap on the BRP.

I parked at the overlook and walked back down the BRP a short distance, crossed over, and got on the MST for a bit longer distance before heading up slope to the flatish wooded summit. I opted to take a direct approach back to the car on steeper and brushier terrain than the ascent.

Back at the BRP I walked up the lane that apparently heads up to the east summit directly across from where the MST heads in the direction of the west summit, but I soon spotted a home and decided not to go further.
