Did not use either the routes via South Mountain State Park or the routes via the gated community.

From I-40, Exit 103, near Morgantown, NC drove south 9 miles on US 64, then easterly 14.8 miles on Roger Hollow Road (1.5 paved, 7.7 gravel/dirt, 5.6 definite 4WD) to South Mountain Wildlife Gamelands; parked at a 2,460 foot saddle west of summit.

Hiked the road and path to the summit, got inside the fenced radio tower area to touch the HP. Only 1.5 miles round trip hike, 400 feet elevation gain.
