Ascent Trip Report

Parked the vehicle at the gated tower road access point along Hwy 143 (37.253140, -90.505254). Park security was also there and said it was no problem for me to leave my vehicle there while hiking the mountain. Started out around 5:21pm and reached the summit just before 6pm. Easy gravel road hike up in pleasant, clear 70 degree weather. Grabbed a few photos of the tower at the top and searched for the BM. Only found the MUDLICK NO.2 geodetic marker, never did find the main BM. Started down about 6:05pm and was back at the vehicle by 6:40pm. Total roundtrip trek was 3.9 miles with 887 feet of elevation gain from the tower road gate. Back to Poplar Bluff for the night then off to Taum Sauk in the a.m.
