Ascent Trip Report

From US 64 in Asheboro drove south on the Zoo Parkway, NC 159, before bearing left onto Old Cox Road. At the top of the Cox Mtn saddle I pulled into the southside access road for the Cross Road Baptist Church and drove the short distance up to the parking lot and the church. A rounded spot of the parking lot initially appears to be the high point of Cox, but right in between the church building and a picnic there is a small slice of what appears to be the original summit complete with a couple of large boulders.

If this drive up proves to be a let down, consider ascending the north summit of Cox Mountain. I walked across Old Cox Road directly across from the church access road and gently ascended around a locked gate up to the flat summit in 3 minutes time. No views on this forested north knoll.

An expansive view of Cox Mountain and the church can be had from the top of Harveys Mt.
