Ascent Trip Report

I included the track up Ossie Hayes Road since this peak is really a drive-up. There's a cul-de-sac where the road officially ends complete with posted signs on the right side of the road, a camera and what appears to be a light of some sort. I guess the guy in that last house has had some issues with troublemakers going up there. The road does keep going up further, though. It's paved but it's very steep, covered with leaves and small trees are starting to encroach. I drove up this section until a tree blocked my way. I could have had an easy place to turn around near the top but instead I had to back down that road that included a very tight switchback. I would advise to just park near the cul-de-sac and walk up the road to the top.
