Ascent Trip Report

The Brushy Mountain HP. From Wilkesboro, take NC 16 south past many apple and produce stands to Poore's Creek Road. Turn left and proceed up the asphalt and then dirt road. This is all private land, so ask permission from the landowners. The road up is mostly dirt to a gate that was open. I drove past that point and was met by 2 residents who appreciated their the community there. I parked the car and was kindly greeted by a couple of homeowners who walked me up to the top. They are protective of their land but very nice when they see a person only wanting to climb to the HP. Best directions are in Tom Layton's report. Limited views even in winter.
