Ascent Trip Report

The short, abandoned trail to Pine Mountain starts immediately behind the 'area closed' sign near Buzzards Roost. The trail is overgrown and blocked by many fallen trees, which necessitates some bushwhacking. Routefinding is no problem in 2017, but a few more years of growth could change that. The summit is forested and has no clear highpoint, but there is a large rock cairn at the end of the trail, which is pretty close to the listed coordinates.
