Caswell County Highpoint Trip Report
Date: October 14, 2006
Left Raleigh at 7am. Followed previous trip reports to the "col" at Stony Creek Mtn.
The overgrown jeep track has now become an access road. The area has
been clear-cut and it's pretty easy going following the crisscrossing primitive
roads up to where the ridge abates. As Peter Barr noted in an earlier report,
when you get to this point, you'll see what could be higher ground about 150
yards in the distance. The roads die out here so some light bushwhacking may be
in order depending on time of year. I'm not sure if this is higher than the end
of the ridge or not but you'll probably want to go further to be sure (that
contour in the topo map is big for a summit). The stone cairn mentioned earlier
was lost to the clear-cutting, it appears.
No heavy equipment or evidence of very recent activity is apparent.
It looks like development began on this place but was soon halted.
Round trip was about 0.7 mile, 100 feet of gain, 25 minutes.
