Ascent Trip Report

Burke County HP

Easily accessible from NC 1811 near Jonas Ridge, NC. Turn onto Gingercake Road and then near the top of the hill, turn right on Joe Johnson Road. The HP is located in an empty lot between two houses. Pull of the road here and walk through an open field to a stone bench that faces east (and would make a great place to watch a sunrise). The BM and summit are just off to the south in the woods.
