Ascent Trip Report

I liked this peak a little better. The history was more interesting and there were fewer people this far back. THe descent down the back side meanders through some intersting large boulders and you can imagine the Confederate soldiers hiding among these features ready to ambush their enemy. The trail here does from NPS graded wide trails to typical mountain trails with rugged footing and rocks and i like that better!

The meander down to Pigeon Hill was a pleasant trip.
