Ascent Trip Report

Nice hike. Started at the parking lot on the SW side of Bettes Tribble Rd. Trailhead for the ridgeline trail starts right next to the playground. Follow this for 1 mile until it meets up with the mountainside trail. Bear left and continue another ~1/2 mile to the road. Followed the road up past some houses to the top. Summit area is still marked as "No Trespassing, property of Forsyth County" but well...

Anyway, went back down the road and made a right to continue westward on the mountainside trail. Looped around the peak and followed the Hilltop trail back to the parking area. In total about 5.7 miles. 5.1 miles of trail, plus 0.3 miles each way of road hike.
