Ascent Trip Report

Stopped in at the office, where they recommended I take the Summit Trail to the summit (made sense). However, if you are just looking to bag the peak, take the road out (marked State Park Road in Google Maps) to the Group Campsite. This is the other terminus of the Summit Trail. From there, just follow the trail a few hundred yards to the peak. I did the mile or so hike up the summit trail, which was pretty. I startled a Copperhead which tried to bite me! When you get close to the end of the trail, it heads down and bears left to the Group campsite. Look right and you will see a few highpoint candidates. Head toward them and you will find the actual highpoint with a small cairn.
