chmoore577Route Climbed: Summit Road Date Climbed: June 22, 2003  Sucess!


Property was overgrown and looked terrible. By far the worst highpoint so far from an aesthetic standpoint. Marker was covered by weeds under the firetower. The steps to the bottom two levels of the tower were missing. Will decided he was climbing the tower anyway and shimmied up a metal base pole until he reached wooden steps probably 20 feet up. He then walked the steps all the way to the top. Upon his return I asked him how the view from the top was. His reply... "good".

Pouring rain! Couldn't find the highpoint marker at first as it was hidden behind large bushes. The drive was dark and dreary, but it was more open up at the top.

I parked my care at the base of the summit road, just between the "Welcome to Virginia" and "Welcome to Kentucky" signs. It was a 3 mile round trip hike on some ice and snow to the summit, with an elevation gain of about 250 feet. The drive up was very pretty, but no decent overlooks to stop and take photos!
