Ascent Trip ReportFollowed trip reports posted previously on cohp.org to get to the top. Nothing new to add about the summit or approach road. On the way back to our car (we parked about .1 mile past the end of the pavement), I stopped off in the woods for a quick bathroom break and stumbled onto an old upright gravestone dated to the 1950s. There were a few other headstones in the general vicinity as well, all dating to the first half of the 20th century. If future hikers wish to visit, look for a mossy "road" on the south side of the dirt road near the halfway point to the summit. The first stone is near there, and the rest are close nearby.
