Ascent Trip Report

There is an established trail system starting across the street from the Beech Mtn visitors' center. One can ascend to the summit without coming in contact with the park relics, but you should still probably try to get permission from the park owner. I encountered a local resident who stated that nobody mind if you follow the faint path to the summit.
