Ascent Trip Report

I parked at the end of Dirty Britches Drive in Maggie Valley. The house at the end is (or was) for sale and seemed vacant. This made me feel better about parking very close to the house in front of the gate of the road that heads up Point 5401. The land on the slopes of this mountain are owned by a developer and not the owner of the house. There are no 'No Trespassing' signs or purple paint anywhere. The road climbs somewhat steeply all the way to the summit. You get nice views of Plott Balsam once you get higher up and views towards Cataloochee Ranch as well.
