Spartanburg County Highpoint Trip Report

Date: late July 1998
Author: Walt O'Neil

From SC 14 in Landrum go north on U.S. 176 about a mile and turn left on Blackstock Road. Take an immediate right and bear left up the hill about 2 miles to the top. You will be treated to a nice observatory and house with a railroad car beside the house. Don't do what I did. I circled the mountain 3 times looking for access and found what appeared to be all private roads so I bushwhacked up the power cut and through thick woods most of the way up until I stumbled upon the gravel road, which I took to the top. I descended the road and found where it came out.
