Ascent Trip Report

Hiked Graveyard Fields Ridge loop trail. Looked for the best route up to the ridge top, as there was no obvious route on maps and on the ground. Finally decided on a bushwhack route on the North side of the ridge, which turned out to be a rather thick laurel thicket. Slow going up, sliding on backside down, but did gain the top of the ridge. So thick up there that there was no way to know if I was on the actual high point, but GPS verified that I was above the highest contour line on the USGS topo map, so that's good enough for me in these conditions.
