Ascent Trip Report

Follow forest roads to Horse Gap. From here there is an old ATV trail that goes up the southeastern slope. I came across a few signs on the way up saying things like 'One way trail Do not enter' and 'Trail Closed'. The signs were in pretty good shape, the trail was not. I guess there was some sort of ATV trail system in this area but I only saw one trail, the one I hiked and it was rough around the edges. There's a good many blowdowns but most aren't hard to get around. There's one area that's worse than the others not too long after you start out up the slope. Go around it on the right (east) side when in doubt. Once on the ridgeline the ATV trail continues to just beyond the summit.
