Ascent Trip Report

Attempted a day hike out and back from High Point. Made it to one mile north of the summit before reaching my mandatory turn around time. Wanted to avoid a hike out in the dark. The trail was hard enough to see in some areas in the daylight with the leaves down. Came back the next day and summited from the south at Culvers Gap.
