Ascent Trip Report

The northern end of this odd range of small mountains is gated, posted and appears to be patrolled, so I headed south on Range Rd to Tunstall Trail. Take a right and proceed to a paved turnoff to the left that allows an approach to the south summit through open woods. Had more spiders than just about any bushwhack I have encountered recently. The HP affords no views and looks like it is primed for future development. From the turnoff, park and hike up the ridge to the top (also known as Tallyho Mountain; not a recognized peak of its own). Once on top I noticed a side trail to the NW that likely leads to rest of the homes already built there. .5 round trip. My 55th CoHP in NC.
