Ascent Trip ReportFrom US220 south of Monterey VA, take VA 84 west for 14.7 miles, cross the state line into WV, and turn L on FSR 55 (there's no longer a sign for Paddy Knob). Continue 2.9 miles on this gravel road to the crest, where you'll find the overgrown driveway to the old tower (no longer the yellow posts mentioned in previous reports). The footings for the fire tower (poured in 1934) are still there, but I was unable to find the BM.
