Ascent Trip Report

Vigorous climb on an excellent trail to a spectacular cliff-top view. I counted 650 stone steps from the creek crossing to the summit.

This was the 98th COHP of 100 in NC for Charlie Zerphey and my 93rd. Charlie had hoped to finish NC on Moore's Knob, but we were thwarted earlier in the week by high water that made it dangerous to approach Camden and Pasquotank.
