Jackson County High Point Trip Report
Richland Balsam (6,410 ft)
Date: June 19, 2000
Author: Mike Beavers
After my experience with Chestnut Knob I didn't think that I would ever get my wife to go with me to
another high point with me but she decided to hike a short the nature trail to the top of this peak with me.
This was a nice hike and we did not have any trouble other than seeing two small snakes. We could not
locate the BM however, on the trail about 100 feet from the top there is a sign that says Balsam Summit.
