Ascent Trip Report

Used previous trail reports as a guide. Two tracks available for heading up the North Summit COHP. Coming in south from Alamance county going to Caswell county line on Stony Mountain Rd.
I drove to the county line sign, pulled off to take a photo. I used address 6799 Stony Mountain Rd Burlington and 13 Milesville Rd, Elon to get to this county line sign.

I found the “second track” location about 50 yards ahead of the sign on the Caswell side. Not very obvious driving by in a car.

I turned the car around and drove south back into Alamance county maybe 0.1 miles, if that, from the county line sign. Turned left into “first track” road and parked next to the road.

I hiked up the ‘first track’. Little brushy and thorny this time of year otherwise obvious to follow. The road track splits but really doesn’t matter which fork you take both come together again at the end of the track. At the end of the track or top of the hill I used GPS and was on maybe 150 feet away. Mix of somewhat thick pine trees, hawthorn, and some briers. Not horrible but slow going. Found non-obvious HP. Took a photo of myself on a small rock as my reward.
Walked 10 yards to the “second track” and decided to take that down. Slightly more overgrown compared to the ‘first track’, level with little downhill grade and not really that bad. Popped out near the country line sign I saw earlier and walked back to my car to complete a loop hike. Took maybe 30 minutes.
