Ascent Trip ReportI was traveling west on Stilesboro Road when I made a left onto Beaumont Drive. Not the smartest thing to do since Stilesboro is four lanes and there ain't a turn lane. I drove up Beaumont Drive and parked on shoulder across from #1436. On my/west side is a Georgia Historic Marker for the Pine Mt civil war battle. A grassy lane leads a short distance further west to a monument to General Polk who was killed during the conflict.
I thought the high point might actually be on the other side of Beaumont where the woods meets the north lawn of #1436. An orange pulley with rope ascending a tree appears to mark the spot.
