Ascent Trip Report

I approached from the south on Yellow Hill Road, which is in rough condition. A section of the road south of the intersection with Indian Town Road is in particularly bad shape. I drove through numerous car-sized potholes.

I parked at the start of the gated dirt road leading up Copicut. I hiked the half mile or so up to the circle drive, where I saw a few communication towers and a fire tower. The road sloped gently upward, with a small, somewhat steeper rise at the end. It didn't feel like I was climbing a hill.
