The first time we missed the start of the bushwhack to the summit in the rain. It's not too bad a bushwhack if you can locate the marker on the trail. There was only one patch of cane on the bushwhack. Lucky us.
Bushwhacked from the Mountains to Sea Trail from the northeastern side of the mountain. I was a little concerned about this bushwhack but found it to be fairly easy. The view from the location where you begin the bushwhack is incredible.
