The Trail guide book "Best Hikes with Dogs for Georgia and South Carolina" list this a named peak feature near the terminus of the Pine Mountain Trail system as "Hogback Mountain" It is actually just a finger like Knob projection off the north side of Pine Mountain cut by the water courses around it. Because the state park trail system has this small knob as a designated destination as it climbs as a long day hike from the Cascade Branch and can be made into a far more interesting 7 mile loop hike to capture the nearby county highpoint (Pine Mountain East Summit) in Meriwether County Georgia (a 7 mile loop hike) it is a worthy peak to tag as a half way point for those wishing a journey to CHP instead of essentially a non descript drive up from the radio tower parking lot.

Col is easy found just south of the knob connecting to the perpendicular ridge running north of the main Pine Mountain spine to the south at elevation 1150.
