Ascent Trip ReportWhile driving my daughter's things to her at Durham, NC I took a little side trip here to get the high point. Exited Interstate 24 at #174 to Lookout Mountain. Took Hwy 41 to 148, turned right and headed up the mountain. Really didn't have a plan, just kept going up and somehow came out at the water towers. There's a fence all around so you can't get right up to the towers, but I parked at the City Hall building and jumped the rock retaining wall and scrambled up to the fence. I then went down to the Incline Rail and parked (luckily someone had just left an hour on a meter and I got a free spot). I then walked across the street to the stairs and turned left on N. Bragg Ave and walked to 815.
