Ascent Trip Report

Caswell County HP.

From I-85, take the NC 62 exit and head north passing through Burlington. After about 15 stoplights, turn left on Union Ridge Road and continue north 5.6 miles. Turn left on Stony Creek Mountain Road. At the gap just past the County line, pull off the road on the right. To the left is a well maintained private and gated road that leads to Stony Mountain. To the right is your trailhead - a somewhat overgrown grassy road that follows the ridge north. Make sure to have GPS with you as the "road" tends to wind around and cross various side roads. Best to do this one in winter as it is a haven for vines, thorns, poison ivy and just about any insect native to the area. Near the summit the road ends and you will need to turn east to bushwhack through heavy undergrowth to a small isolated pine tree at the summit.
