Ascent Trip Report

Mount Noble Trail up from Cherokee. This is pretty much unrelenting climb for the entire length. It exits onto a road just below the lookout tower on a subpeak. Main peak is accessible by indistinct trail off of road down from the lookout tower. The lookout tower area is pretty trashed with glass and barbed wire everywhere. The tower has been used for target practice apparently, however it has a much better view than the true summit.
