Ascent Trip Report

... expected at 4PM (I'd earlier in the week called the contact number from the County High Point website for the Department of Defense, Strategic Communications), I arrived at Pen Mar High Rock Road's end at about quarter to four and with friendly greeting allowed to walk the remaining short paved distance beyond the guard shack to the summit (sans camera). On the way back down the road, I stopped at the High Rock just off the Appalachian Trail which is a popular hang-gliding site with spectacular views. Paved Pen Mar High Rock Road is gated from dusk to 9 AM.
