Ascent Trip Report

On US178 south of Rosman, take paved Babb Road, turn left on unpaved Nancy Mountain Road, and follow your GPS. The road passes a few yards west of the summit, and I walked up the driveway past am unoccupied camping trailer. It looks like there is a local trail crossing the summit and following the ridge. Dick Oestricher's trip report describes his meeting with the cordial owner of the high point and a view better than Sassafras, but when I visited, there was nobody home but the fog.

On the Eastern Continental Divide list at listsofjohn, this was my 37th ranked peak of the 103.
