Following the reports from CoHP, it appears vehicle access onto the logging roads is not allowed. A new fence and gate block the road from its start on VA-724 but there are no posted signs. I hopped over the fence and started the walk. Most of the entire walk was in the open, the area evidently having been logged in recent years. Only the HP itself was in forest. I found Don Desrosiers's 2-rock cairn at the HP, one rock having been moved a few feet away for whatever reason. It seemed to be the HP to me too. The 2-mile round-trip walk took me about 45 minutes. The road was very muddy.
