Albemarle County High Point Trip Report
Big Flat Mountain (3,345 ft)
Date: October 5, 1999
Author: John Garner
Conditions: Clear, 60 F
Directions to Trailhead: Take Skyline Drive in Shenandoah NP. About 20 miles N of I-64,
find Loft Mountain Wayside (grocery, gas station, ranger, etc.), turn right on road
to Loft Mountain Campground. Drive 1.3 miles up this road to campground at top.
Route: No hike. I found the highest point to be in the middle of the campground,
near space G159.
HP Description: HP is near water tank and other equipment at top of mtn.
No benchmark, or other sign.
View: Broken. Fairly decent just below HP, but doesn't compare with any of the
overlooks on the highway.
