Ascent Trip Report

Unfortunately, the access road to the summit of Stono Mountain was gated and locked. My son, Marshall, and I jumped the gate and hiked the 1.2 mile climb to the top. It was disappointing to find that the summit tower had been removed and no summit views were possible due to the trees. There was a tall communication tower on the summit. Instead of returning to the car by the same route, we chose to descend by shortcutting east through the forest which was easy traveling. In just .15 miles, we reached the road we hiked up on and eliminated probably .5 miles of distance.
