Ascent Trip ReportFrom Cut Laurel Gap, all routes are posted. However, a few hundred yards back down the road I found a yellow NFS boundary sign, where I parked. The first half of the climb was through laurel, not too thick at the bottom and disappearing toward the top. No views.
I had also hoped to hike to nearby Winnie Knob and the more distant Bald Knob, but I couldn't find a route where I felt I was not trespassing.
