Ascent Trip Report

Nice, pretty ascent with a good view at the top. There's no other official trail to access this peak. However, it looks like there used to be another one that comes up from the Mountains-to-Sea/Douglas Falls Trail. Another hiker said that it had been closed (mayve due to erosion?). I did not go down far enough to investigate.

Nice guide is "Hiking the Blue Ridge Parkway" by Randy Johnson.
