Ascent Trip Report

After visiting Gateway Arch National Park we headed into the Missouri countryside taking as many backroads as possible on our way to the highpoint. In the town of Ironton, just a little ways from the mountain, there is an excellent BBQ joint named Baylee Joes BBQ which I would consider a must stop. We grabbed food here and headed up to the park picnic area to consume our pulled pork. Being from Texas where beef brisket is king, I felt like I was betraying my kinfolk but it was delicious and fueled our hike to the summit up the very short paved trail.
