Ascent Trip Report

Found small town of Mountville in Georgia. Parked at small church lot and walked down past an older church of Railroad street. Then walked down to the ravine (dip in road) and made it a trailhead then hiked up to the HP off Greenville Road, barely on private property. Then drove around and parked on Dallas Mills road and parked and hiked up to the HP just west of the clay road. I checked out the third candidate spot to the east and decided it was probably not as high as the others. The other spots all exceed the 940 contour and could easily be 10 to 15 feet higher whereas the hill of the third spot barely even touches the 940 contour. Previous report opined that spot #2 was the highest.
