Ascent Trip ReportThe trail off Flint Knob east dives off the north side of the knob before circling around to the east side. I think it does this to bypass a huge rhody thicket on the east side. There were beautiful icecicle formations hanging off ledges of moss on this side.
Anyway the trail continues across a saddle and back up onto Flint Knob. The high point is on a rock way on the west end of the ridge.
If you turn left right before the high point, it leads out onto some ledges from which there are awesome views out to the south.
