Ascent Trip Report

Out for a 3 day traverse of the North Fork section of the Ozark Trail, decided to go to this highpoint, since it is only about a quarter mile off the main Ozark trail. There is no view or anything really special about this highpoint, other than that it is the highpoint. I can recommend a visit to Blue Spring, a little farther along the Ozark trail, as it is truly remarkable, and you will get a workout from the elevation gain/loss.
