Ascent Trip Report

I followed a well-trodden herd path as it veered away from the old roadway thinking to be looping back around to the peak but only found a series of mtn bike trail jcts never going back my way but constantly reaching west with the final jct seeming to head toward 1580' Pine Mountain; I retraced my steps looking for a missed path eastward while closing bushwhack distances, managing in this way to finally loop back around by bushwhack (dodging thickets of laurel) to the more narrowly beaten herd path along the old summit road, detouring at this time to geocache thru more fields of fern before reaching back up to a small summit of granite foundation stones followed by a real quick old road, herd path descent.
