Ascent Trip Report

I did not find Ben's path. I entered a road with a metal gate. The road I took went to the west side of the HP. I finally left the road to bushwhack my way East to the HP. I did finally find a road taking me to the HP. I had to bushwhack about half the way back. Heavy growth difficult bushwhacking.

I wished I used google earth before this trip. It is clear with google earth there is a road/trail close to the HP coming from CR143N on the south side. If no gates it maybe close to a drive up. Well at least no bushwhacking.

I think Ben's road/trail on the north side starts at 31.537, -93.985964. I exited on this road one road/trail farther east than the metal gate that I started at. Ben's Road may go to the HP; I only used the last little bit of it on the way out.

Alert! I did see signs of wild hogs.
