Ascent Trip Report

The key to this HP is pick your poison. The pretty sites might not be the HP, but still worth visiting. I opted for one of the two candidates for the highest HP. Per Tom Layton:

To get to Knoll BM, go to 2901 NC Hwy 24. Park at the entrance to Karobi Park (mobile home park) and walk up the hill. The BM is easy to find between two wooden posts. This is across the highway from the intersection with Nine Mile Road, which is also known as Nine Foot Road on its northern end.

I have visited this area a lot over the years and never realized it was a HP!
