Ascent Trip Report

As far as I can determine Little Rich Mountain is the 6th highest named highpoint in South Carolina. The closest approach is located at 35.1352 N 82.59767 W where you are only .18 air mile from the summit, but there isn't any place to park a car safely here. Just .15 miles west is a small parking spot on the north side of the road located at 35.13377 N 82.59967 W where I parked and hiked the road east back to the closest access point. From here I reached the summit in 9 minutes after covering .19 mile where I found a metal surveyor's pin beside a short thin dead tree with orange flagging tied around it. There was not much of a view here and I made it back to the road in 7 minutes and back to my car in another 3 minutes after covering .33 miles from the summit.
