Ascent Trip ReportBased on other trip reports, my son, Marshall, and I only climbed the eastern and northwestern summits on Garlands Knob. Previous trip reports mentioned that they thought the southern point was lower. From where we parked our car, it was only 500 feet to the east summit. En route we passed over some linear rock piles which we have seen on Turner Ward Knob and Hare Mountain as well. If these old structures are supposed to be former property boundaries, someone did a great deal of work to build them. They contained a lot of rock. They almost looked like battle fortification, perhaps from the Civil War. They were quite interesting. It was .12 miles to the northwestern summit from the east summit and we encountered a few thorns along the way. Neither summit provided any views due to the trees. The entire roundtrip climb to both summits and back to the car required less than 30 minutes.
