Ascent Trip Report

For excellent driving instructions to this isolated spot see Mike Schwartz' trip report on the County High Point web site. After the long drive on gravel forest roads, the result was a bit underwhelming: a flat forested top with remnants of the foundation of a fire tower and a very short walk down a grassy path and a 100 foot bush whack slightly north of the path to some rocks surrounded by underbrush and small trees. Sometimes that's what high pointing is about.
