Ascent Trip Report

Came here after a rough go of it on Bearfort Mountain. This one was infinitely easier, especially the brief bushwhacking part of it. Accidentally took the long way around the back of the park (parked at picnic area) via the white and red trails to get there. There's a sign marking the high point on the trail and a bench built by an Eagle Scout a short distance away. The actual high point is ~200-300 feet into the woods west of the trail, through what I guess is technically a bushwhack but it's very easy walking with a pretty well-defined track. There's a small boulder at what appears to be the highest point with what looks like may have once been a cairn at the top of it. Took the blue blazes back down the hill.
