BadgerSummitSeekerHP # 19  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 30, 2010


One of the least desirable state high points. No view on the top, no special marker to denote the summit, some trash on the ground and a quadrillion mosquitoes to keep me company. Some nice views on the way in though.

sgb02dNice Day


Everything was nice and green. Found the only view near the top where the power lines are.

NJTripperJust another high point...  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 8, 2008


Drive to lot near summit took care of the initial work... but I did hike the summit trail down a couple miles and back (good for 1100 ft elevation).

KoonsyDrove as far as I could..  Sucess!


until my car couldn't make it any further because of the snow and ice so I hiked up the last mile or two. Kinda disappointing summit.

I summited on what must have been the first day of hunting season. On the drive to Sassafras Mt., I must have passed hundreds of hunters lining the roads waiting for the start time.

Date Climbed: Jul 11, 2009


It's in a really pretty place but... South Carolina and Mississppi are very similar and both could learn a lesson from Florida on turning nothing into something.

RedwicBetter Than Woodall Mountain...  Sucess!
Date Climbed: May 23, 2009


This was my first of six State Highpoints reached over Memorial Day weekend. The gate was open. This HP was better than Woodall Mountain (Mississippi HP), but not by much. State Highpoint #33 for me.

Not as tough to find as I thought - directions provided on Summitpost were perfect! Pretty dumpy summit, however.

adventurebugAwful Drive  Sucess!
Approached from the north, had an awful time on the tiny winding roads and difficulties even finding the right roads. At least it's off the list!

Date Climbed: Dec 26, 2008


I hiked the Foothills Trail from the Chimneytop Gap trailhead with one of my dogs while my father drove to the top with my other dog to meet us. I could see the surrounding mountains through the leafless trees on the way up, but it was too foggy at the top to see anything. HP19

Date Climbed: Sep 1, 2008


Had a little difficulty finding it, but I got it! This ended a trip that involved bagging six highpoints in one weekend!

Tbacon251Nice View  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 21, 2008


The place was kind of messy. The sign was destroyed. Other than that I was glad I could mark it off my list. No view from the top. It was my 2 yo. daughters first high point (she got Brasstown and Clingmans after this one).

Date Climbed: Jun 9, 2003


I (with my wife (Tracy) and son (Alex), then almost 3 yrs old) did this as part of our second family HP trip. Not much of a view!

Date Climbed: Sep 26, 1985


I did this with my wife and son while we were on our way to Hilton Head. Very humid and really not much of a view. More interesting to see it from the road side.

Wow. I don't have much to say about this one. Time for some clean up.

TracyHighpoint #17  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 4, 2008


I was short on time, so I did it the quick and boring way - walked up from the gate at the end of the road. The sun was setting, and there were a number of mosquitos trying to get a taste of me. The round trip from my hotel in Greenville took me about 2.5 hours.

maddie77777Foggy day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 20, 2008


Couldn't see views at all, since it was rainy and extremely foggy. Anyway, it's crossed off the list. They need a sign or something telling people it's the highest point of SC. Pretty lame. Even my Indiana highpoint has a sign!

Date Climbed: Mar 15, 2009


Climbed the mountain via the Foothills Trail from Chimneytop Gap on April 12, 2008. I was pretty impressed with the type of terrain that characterized the mountain on the hike up. I was not expecting that in South Carolina. It was fairly steep and remote. Enjoyed the area. Visited again after proposing to my girlfriend, but this time we drove up. We were heading back to Atlanta after climbing some sixers in the Pisgah National Forest.
