Ascent Trip Report

The Mountain-to-Sea Trail passes very near this summit within 100 yards of the Blue Ridge Parkway at the Mount Jefferson Overlook near MP 267. But there's no direct route to get there from the overlook, because of a taut new barbed-wire fence. To save your skin, cross the fence at one of the stiles SE or SW of the overlook. Round trip about 0.5 miles.
