Ascent Trip Report

Fred Lobdell's excellent TR of 1999 still applies today, nothing seems to have changed. One can shorten the walk by approaching from the residential street to the south (Quail Hollow) and walking between homes.
As Fred notes Golf Courses have sculptured surfaces therefore nothing natural about this summit area. The PB coordinates locates the spot at a lower elevation, I chose my spot at what I guessed to be the highest bump 28.02525, 82.72032.
As far as the J C Penney area is concerned, nothing natural here for sure, PB should eliminate this one as a candidate.
