Ascent Trip Report

From GA85W, turn W onto GA190 and park at the historical marker for Roosevelt's Longleaf Pine Planting. A stake here marks the trailhead for the White Candle Trail. Follow this trail across a small ravine and down the ridgeline toward Talbot County. When the trail veers right, stay on the ridge heading SE until you are satisfied you have crossed into Talbot County. My GPS units disagreed on the border location: GAIA GPS on my iPhone showed the line about 50 yards farther south than the Garmin did. So I went a little past the 1260 contour to make sure. I did not see any stakes or signs marking the border. It is an east-west line at N32.844521 (N32deg 50min 40sec). The woods are open, so the bushwhack is easy.
