Ascent Trip ReportI used Peter Barr's eastern approach, as posted on cohp.org, which worked well.
From US-158 SE of the hamlet of Berea, go south on Culbreth Road, shown on the topo as CR-1138. At about 3 1/2 miles, turn right(W) on Enon Road for 0.6 miles, then turn right(N) onto Range Road, shown as CR-1126 on the topo. Go 1.2 miles to the dirt road on the left (W) side of the road. As Peter reported, you will pass a small cemetery about 0.1 miles in. We drove as far an already harvested tobacco field and parked rather than cross the muddy ditch mentioned by Peter. From there the summit was about 3/4 miles distant. Take the left fork along the metal-wire fence and continue steadily uphill. Well up on the mountain, go left at another fork (N 36.27575 W78.75414 WGS-84), shown on the aerial photo, and follow the road to within less than 100 feet of the summit rocks to your right. I rebuilt the cairn, but saw no register can. Decent views during the ascent.
