Ascent Trip ReportDrove most of the way up then walked the rest. Great views through the trees, especially to the west, where you can see the Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance. Views would probably be obscured in the summer by leaves. There's a fire tower near the summit but it might not be on the very top; there are a couple of other candidates but it's easy to walk around and touch them all. A USGS benchmark is set in concrete at the bottom of the fire tower steps.
