Ascent Trip Report

Five years after this hill was logged, there's been no further development, and the brush was not as thick as I feared it might be. There are some rocky places along the ridge that look like potential HPs, but I believe the best candidate is near a surveyors stake near the tree line on the NE end of the ridge, furthest from the car.

Round trip hike about 0.8 miles.

My 62nd COHP and 30th in NC.
