Ascent Trip Report

The third lowest state HP finally conquered. My last state HP in the SE United States. My 35th state HP. I used the trail over the false summit each way to give some additional interest and gain to an otherwise very easy state HP. Surprisingly there are a lot of trails at the summit and you can go many different ways up there. The trails have some pretty obnoxious color blazes and often multiple colors of orange and blue. There is a kiosk and a bench at the summit. Karen clocked her 18th SHP.
