Ascent Trip ReportIt was not an easy task locating the ascent road, but finally after driving around for 30 minutes on the west and south side of Sevenmile Mountain, I found the correct road. It is located on the south side and my GPS named it Clarke Road, but it was not signed at the beginning. Clarke Road ends after about 1/2 mile at a gate which marks the military base restricted area. Only about 200 yards before this gate, a dirt road on the left heads north. This road parallels the western boundary of the military base and after about 3 miles it goes directly over the highest point on Sevenmile Mountain. Fortunately, this point is outside the restricted area by about 25 yards. There is no view here due to the trees, but it is an easy peak to bag once you locate the correct road.
