Albemarle County High Point Trip Report
Big Flat Mountain
Date: October 18, 1999

When I was there in March (1996, I think) the campground was closed
(it doesn't open until April 1) and the entrance road was gated.
So I hiked up the Appalachian Trail from the nearest parking area
and took a side rail up to the campground, a round trip distance of about 2 miles.
John reports no bench mark, but I saw one inside the fence around the
water tank at the summit. I was unable to get to it, but the ground outside
looked actually slightly higher in a couple of places than that inside the fence.
