Ascent Trip Report

Unsuccessful. Despite the wonderful report of hospitality in the report 14 months previously by John Hatch, the day we arrived their was a gate closed and locked on his property. It was about 3PM on a Saturday. Of course it is near the holidays so they could have simply been visiting kin or out for the day. I respected the privacy as the road clearly goes from public to private at this point.

The views off the bluff are amazing as reported previously. We left a nice note in the mailbox of Mr. Davies to let him know how his past hospitality has been greatly appreciated by other before me and hopefully when he or his family are there they will continue their hospitality to other highpointers. We made sure to respect all property owner rights and leave an uplifting complimentay note for them to return to and went about our way to other nearby hikes, mountains, and highpoints in the AR state park system where access is guaranteed.
