Ascent Trip Report

Using GPS after pulling off the William B. Umstead State Park Road from US 70, I followed my eyes and corrected as need with GPS. There does appear to be markers at the HP, but walked around the entire area to find the HP. I found it close to the markers, but given the erosion in this Park, it could change.
