Ascent Trip Report

A sparse summit among young tree growth, this "peak" lies above the somewhat quaint town of Cherokee Falls, SC. Set your GPS to Bachelor Drive in Cherokee County, SC. The Ridge actually lies somewhat steeply above the town and the Broad River. From Bachelor Drive take the unnamed dirt road to right and follow it to HP. Not much to see here, so tagged it and moved on.

The town of Cherokee Falls has seen better days, but still has an unique dam and Booger Jim's Hollow Haunted House, which is seasonally open to visitors.
