Went route shown here today. Beautiful clear day. At the top continued north for about a mile until what seemed like the northern most point but noticed the trail continued.
Looked on google earth when home and see a marked trail labeled "snake mountain trail" with two access points from meat Camp road.... I see one post on this but curious why this is the one shown on google but most seem to do the rich mtn road route which is awfully steep.
DDes anyone else have more experience with the meat Camp access points?
Very pretty hike and very accessible. Steep, but not far.
Awesomely steep hike. Very pretty on a partly cloudy day! What do you all suppose that pole was for? The state has access now on Sutherland. Don't know where you would park down there, but you can park at the 'normal' spot and the state property is about 500' from there. Heavily marked...
Fantastic hike/ridge walk. One of my favorites in the southeast
This the access is off Meat Camp Rd at the gap. Please contact the owners as they would like to know who is on the mountain.
I was up last month. Past the gate, I went right, should've gone straight. Ended up bushwhacking steeply up the east side of the mountain. The path on the summit ridge is fairly overgrown. In warm months I recommend long pants and long sleeve shirt. Good views from the HP, though fair amount of clouds when I was up, should be spectacular when clear.
I then went over to Rich Mt Bald and bushwhacked to the summit. I lost my keys and my wife ended up driving an hour to bring me another key. She hadn't been that mad in awhile.
