Ascent Trip Report

Sumner county’s lone 1080+ foot contour is located on Wolf Hill on private land behind a barbed wire fence.

I approached Wolf Hill from I-40, getting off at Lebanon and taking US-231/TN-10 north about 17 miles. Turn right on TN-260, then left on to Hancock Rd which turns in to Wolf Hill Ridge Rd. The high point is about 1.5 miles from the intersection with TN-260.
Upon arriving at the high point, I found a gated and locked pasture with a few cows visible down the hill. The highpoint contour itself is about a tenth of a mile and 100 vertical feet away from a small barn by the roadside.

With no house in the immediate vicinity and Ken Oeser’s report saying he climbed over the fence anyway, I opted to stealth the high point and walked down the fence line until I found a spot I could crawl under; I didn’t have to walk far. Once inside the fence I found an old road cut that lead directly to the top.
No views from the top…but do cow patties count as natural terrain or augmented?
