There's another HP listed (as continuation from the Alcorn map), but after much searching I believe that it is one of the previous HPs that ran over to another map. For Big Ol' Zion Mountain there's a steep 4- wheel drive trail coming in from the SSE. (The 4-wheel drive trail is very rough.) I was able to drive the trail within a half mile of the highpoints and hiked up. I advise taking a bushwhacking stick. The 3 Highpoints on Happy Top Mountain all lie along a road that follows the ridge-top. I came in from the SE, from Morill, Kentucky.
