Ascent Trip Report

Previous trip reports said this hill was posted, but that’s no longer the case. It's a half-mile roundtrip walk from Hatcher Hill Road (S-34-203) through mostly open pine forest that has been thinned in recent years. The top is fairly flat, so you have to wander to make sure you've covered the high point. Stay on the east side of the ridge to avoid rousing the dogs on the west side.
