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

Redwic

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!

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

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

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).

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

Drove over from Gatlinburg, drove up, saw the HP. Stopped by a few North Carolina waterfalls along the way to break up the drive.

This peak is quite a ways from anywhere I might normally visit, but that's what makes highpointing fun!
