Ascent Trip Report

From US321 south of Blowing Rock, take St. Marks Road, which looks like a driveway in front of St. Marks Lutheran Church. You can drive all the way to the top, but I parked at the foot of Pinnacle Wind Lane (private) and walked the last quarter-mile. There's a horseshoe pit on the summit.
