Ascent Trip Report

Abandoned 80-foot fire tower on the summit is still in good condition but is padlocked. If you could get above the trees, the view would be spectacular, because there are no comparable hills for miles. Through the trees and despite the overcast, I was able to see much of the Blue Ridge over 50 miles to the NW.

Fred Lobdell has determined that Abbeville is #1 alphabetically among all US counties. If you plan to do them in alphabetical order, proceed to Acadia LA, Accomack VA, Ada ID, and Adair IA.
