Author: Bob Schwab TR shows that this is one of two artifically raised ski resorts that is actually higher than the Oakland County HP. This mountain is, however, a real peak with some prominence and not located near the Grampian Hills preferred CHP and provides at least a place where you can actually hike up something steep and with views so I have enterred it in the database as something to climb for fun in the area.

The geology in this area makes finding the key col quite difficult. It appears that Pine Knob to the SE at 1286+ is the next nearest highest neighbor and the lowest connecting saddle is around 1000 feet. More detailed USGS analysis is necessary to verify.
