Wilkes County Highpoint Trip Report

Date: August 2, 2008
Author: Andy Neisler

After climbing to the summit from another direction we have concluded that the best way is to travel to mile 273.1 (not 273.4 as on Oeser's report). On the Parkway where there is a wide area in which to park and hike due south for 0.25 mile to the summit. We found the benchmark well marked with surveyors tapes and surrounded on three sides with a 1.5 foot high stone enclosure. Absolutely no view but finding the benchmark is reward in itself.
