Ascent Trip ReportShort but steep bushwhack, climbing 300 feet in the last 0.2 miles. Considering how steep it is, I was surprised to find relatively little rock and no open views.
Take Roper Hollow Road from US 64 for 7.3 miles to a gravel parking area just before a closed gate. There is no trail, but the route is unmistakable--just follow the ridge through mostly open woods.
